This is a fun way to get all your traditional handmade art and craft gifts from Zambia, meet the artists and even watch them at work. This is a very popular market for both local and international visitors because there's something for everyone – from inspired interior decorations for your home to easy to carry souvenirs and gifts. Definitely not to be missed!
Arcades also has the entertainment wow factor as it regularly puts on theatrical and musical performances by artists and performers from Zambia and further afield. Such showcases of local talent are held on the charming outdoor piazza. Highlights have included Caitlin Papier (pictured), Zambia's electric violinist sensation, as other well known local artists.
