Shopping in Kampala,
Where to find different
things in Kampala
Souvenirs to remind you of your time in
Uganda, books about Uganda, places to find things you might need, or just
enter into Owino Market with thousands of other Ugandans shopping for things.
Finding some of the best fruit in the world to take back to your hotel and
feast on and more.
Aristoc Books: One of the few
bookstores in Uganda where you can find books of all kinds, but especially
about Uganda, its history and culture. One of my favorite places
to spend an hour just browsing and finding something where I can learn
more about Uganda. Two locations, one on Kampala Road and one
in the Garden City Mall.
Garden City Mall: Here you can
have lunch, dinner in the food court, shop until you drop from groceries
to Ugandan crafts. As far as crafts are concerned you will most
likely pay a bit more but you will not have to
go through the bargaining ritual.
Buganda Road Women's Craft Market:
You will support some Ugandan women when you buy you gifts there.
Nice selection including many fabrics, Ugandan shirts called kitenge.
I will take you an hour or more to pick through all the stalls there.
Walk across the road and have a cup of Ugandan coffee at 1000 cups.
Owino Market: Need some extra
clothing, this is the place to come too, used and new clothing, hundreds
of shops, this is where Kampala shops.
Nakasero Market: This where
you can buy any fresh food item, Choose the best bananas or pineapple
in the world. Great mangos, papaya, jackfruit, even some Ugandan
apples. Located near taxi park.
Craft Market: Buy Direct from the creators and artists of the
crafts from carving to African Jewelry. If you are in Kampala on a
Friday, this is not to be missed.
