Trading is a lifestyle in Nigeria. Wherever Nigerians populate, anyone should expect interesting and wild negotiations and transactions – and our markets remain the best places for them. Nasarawa State is one of the 36 States of Nigeria, located in the north-central geopolitical zone of the country. Several marketplaces can also be found in the district. These markets have continued to attract tourists from all over Nigeria as well as from abroad. It has also made a significant contribution to the growth and development of Nasarawa’s economy, thanks to the tax revenue it raises for the government.
- Keffi Market: The Keffi market sells inexpensive things such as groceries, cosmetics, and other home supplies. The market, however, was recently dismantled, and vendors were ordered to transfer to the newly opened market. Market merchants continue to sell their wares around the market, making it more comparable to a street market.
- Nasarawa Toto Market: This market is located in the Toto local government. The majority of the items sold here are farm products. The market is adjacent to several of the vendors’ farms, ensuring that fresh farm food is sold on a regular basis. Rice and other staple foods are sold here.
- Kasuwan Lafiya: Kasuwan Lafiya market is a relatively small market where petty traders gather to display their vegetables, and food produce.
- Karu Market: It’s a local market with two gates; the first leads to the perishable goods section, which is essentially a farmers market. Both retail and wholesale products may be purchased here, and it is as rowdy as any regular neighborhood market. The second entrance leads to the market square, which is well-organized and not overcrowded, with clean and well-organized stores. The first gate is just across from Government Day Secondary School in Karu, while the second is directly across from ECWA Primary Health Care, shortly beyond Ecwa Junction.
- Orange Market: For many Nigerians residing in the FCT-Abuja and Nasarawa state, the New Orange Market in Mararaba is the greatest option since agricultural products are available in large quantities, are inexpensive, and of excellent quality.
- Masaka Market: Masaka is a town in Nasarawa, central Nigeria. It is a district of Karu Local Government Area. This is where the Masaka market is located. Foodstuff and livestock are sold in this market.
- New Market Keffi: People still prefer the old market, therefore the market is deemed underutilized. Since so few shops have been filled, enforcement is required to force purchasers and shop owners to fully utilize the new building. It does, however, include modern amenities such as parking lots, a police station, and a court.
- Tamar Market Nasarawa: This is another popular food market in Nasarawa state. It is a place where you can get really cheap food and vegetables, most of which are fresh and straight from the farm.
