The market

Musanze serves as the area’s administrative, commercial and service capital. It is a bustling town with plenty of local character. A daily market is held in the new market compound in the centre of town. All kinds of goods essential to the daily life of the local residents are sold or exchanged here and you can also find interesting souvenirs and handicrafts as well. The market is open all day, and is safe to visit provided you take the usual and evident precautionary measures. It is best visited accompanied by your driver-guide who can provide you with interesting information, help you find what you are looking for and assist you in the bargaining process.
