Fodor's Review

Designed in 1930 as an aircraft hangar, this vast space is a jumble of color, noise, and activity. Head to the balcony to view the curio stands on the main level. Outside the market entrance is Biashara Street, where you'll find even more curios, as well as flower sellers and butchers. Look for kikois and kangas, traditional fabrics worn by Kenyan women. They make for colorful sarongs that are good for wearing over a bathing suit or throwing over a picnic table. They're half the price here than in the hotel shops.
