Information:
The bendula at the Senegambia Craft Market was founded in 1982 and has 64 appointed craft stalls a well as others nearby.




The items are sourced in The Gambia and made locally. There are a wide range of art and craft for sale such as tie dye bags, hats, wooden carved masks, gourds, silver jewellery, numerous variations of drums, leather wallets and sandals and chains.

The Association was founded to stand for the economic interests of its members and to be act as an agent between the members and other organisations. It also examines avenues for exporting its members products during the low season.

One of the codes of conduct is that members should not hassle tourists and anyone found doing so could be suspended for 2 weeks. Another code says that Bumsters are not allowed in the craft market with tourists - they should wait outside.
