Warum Einheimische es empfehlen
The Masai Market changes location day to day, but my favourite stop is at the High Court, where you’ll find the market every Saturday. This is the biggest open-air Masai Market, and it offers the widest variety of handmade artisan goods: sisal bags, wooden carvings, colourful fabrics. It’s all laid out on the ground to view and buy. The market was started by a group of Masai women and has grown to offer hundreds of artisans a platform to sell their goods. This is the only source of income for these individuals, who are usually supporting not only their own families, but also several of their distant relatives who cannot work.
