‪Better with a local guide ‬
חברים • ינו׳ 2020
‪I would say it is better to have a local guide, if you plan to visit central market. Most probably nothing would happen to you but it would be more enjoyable, if you have someone, who explains about some strange goods that you can buy at the market :) ‬

‪This market is like a lot of oher one's in West Africa, not too large, busy and noisy. You can find most everything you need there.‬

‪If you want to see the real life of local people, and sure you want, so you come to this place. The feeling there is maybe more shocked than excited or amazed. But people live there..‬

‪Central market madness ‬
עסקי • אפר׳ 2016
‪This is a fascinating place for people looking for a "genuine" experience. The people are friendly and the place is bustling. Don't look at the way meat and poultry is sold. Suspend your rich western sensibilities, don't make comparisons with your local supermarket and appreciate the whole natural human interactions. ‬

‪I've been in many local markets and some we expected to find good handcraft. Here most of the products are imported. Prices are okay. You will find some nice things to buy as food if you are willing to cook (prices are really good for local products) and avoid it at the time when muslins must have to pray. Muslims have the practice of prayer and then they wash face, head, hands and feet. Consequently, dirt floor is muddy. Go there and prepare to face crowds and keep an eye on your belongs, just take the necessary (keys, money, cellphone and sunglasses).‬

‪A market where you can find any good at cheap price‬
חברים • יוני 2015
‪Bandim market is busy at any time of the day and opens every days, not like other markets in Africa where you can't walk without being hassled, here you feel you have the chance to look at things. The quietest time of the day is after lunch when most of the sellers are doing the siesta but with one eye open. Here is were most of the parallel economy of Bissau is. You should not leave Bissau without experience it.
If you adventure yourself through the tinny street inside the market you will find a world of shops, beautiful african textiles, leather shoes and much more. You probably have to bargain the price as they normally double it for tourists (branco= white people)
Go light, free hands, be aware of pickpockets and enjoy it!‬

‪Where you can find things you need - but not all of them‬
פבר׳ 2011
‪As Guinea-Bissau is one of 10 poorest countries in the world the goods are rare and the market is basically to cover the most important needs. You will find the market together with shops. As there is almost no tourism in Bissau, you hardly can buy a souvenir. The market is for local people. They buy chairs, working tools, medicaments, food and cloth, if they have the money for it. The economic situation is critical and people often have no money in the pocket and buy on credit.
Mostly work is not paid much, they just pay the material and the use of energy for a service. You can find a lot of Chinese goods on the market but second hand things from Europe has a higher price because of its better quality and longer lifetime.‬
