I have visited this market a number of times and it is always an interesting experience. The items are authentic African pieces and while you have to often negotiate your price, you will walk away with some pretty nice pieces. During a recent visit to Harlem, I purchased a skirt, jewelry, and of course some black soap. One cannot hit up an African market without not purchasing black soap.
This time, what impressed me the most and what I did not remember from previous visits, is that they have tailors on the premises who make several different items. Skirts, pocketbooks, wallets, and dresses, are just a few items. There were individuals making jewelry, hair and skin products, as well as number of other items for sale.
If you want to shop and want to do and get something different, this place is the place for you!More
