Most people go very early to buy goods from wholesalers to resell to the final consumer at a profit.

There is nothing you cant get from the Balogun market. Specific areas for certain goods and services are made available for easy navigation and location. So, the cloth section is different from the provision section, accessory section, and bridal section. This is a major “Asoebi” market for lovers of “Owambe” parties.
