Shopping spree at Uhuru Street

Uhuru St is the wholesale textile market in the Mnazi Mmoja district near Kariakoo, although the number of people and the attention can be overwhelming for some visitors. It helps to speak Swahili, and if you can, go during the week rather than on Saturdays. It’s a much more enjoyable experience on a weekday, since there are less people around you can chat with the sellers and there is less high-pressure haggling. The Uhuru Street sellers are wholesalers, so unless you feel you're being quoted a very inflated price, it is difficult to bargain. Don’t forget to buy Kangas which is a colorful, sarong-like pieces of cloth with Swahili sayings along the bottom.
