This is a small African market with a variety of items. There are restrooms here that are ok but not sparkling clean. The items here are of fair to good quality. If in the area worth a stop but would not make a special trip...More

When in NYC visit THE AFRICAN MARKET on W. 116th St. in Harlem. Beautiful African sculptures and clothes at a responsible price.

You could skip this, prefer doing my shopping at Chinatown instead. But if you around the area, do come and drop by. Maybe you find something you need.

My wife and I went shopping at the Malcolm Shabazz Harlem Market in NYC. There a several rows of African art, clothes and miscellaneous items. The prices are very affordable and you can bargain with the various merchants.

The Harlem Market was such a delight and welcoming venture especially because my husband is from West Africa. It was like a little bit of Africa in New York. I'm an earring fanatic and I purchased 6 pairs from the market. The vendors carry a...More

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
played a vital role in the history of New York City.
Today, the neighbourhood is as vibrant as ever as new
businesses and developments go up next to local
institutions. The heart of the neighbourhood is
bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and
historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
