Updated: Aug 23, 2021

Will you be in the first 500 to visit Gambia’s Good Market this Saturday November 3rd starting at 10am? If so you will receive a 1kg bag of rice!

Sponsored by Bel Aqua Purified Water, at the October market they donated a 50kg bag for a raffle but this month you can all benefit if you are early enough!!!!

Gambia's Good Market is the first of its kind in the country showcasing local products by entrepreneurs of all ages but with a particular emphasis on youths enabling them to access income earning opportunities.

All potential vendors are interviewed to see that they reach the required standard both in product and packaging and you will spot some innovative packing as you browse the stalls. Single use plastic and plastic in general is actively discouraged. The end product must have been made in The Gambia and wherever possible, sourced in the country too.

Where is it?
