It would amaze you that buyers comes from as far as Ilorin , Ogbomosho, and other neighbouring towns to carry out buying and selling on their market day.
We could sight lots of Fulani’s with their goods such as Suya, clothes, pepper 🌶, tomatoes, groundnuts, rams, everyday items, farm tools, calabash among many other items for sale .
Among these items for sale, we noticed 2 major products that draws attention of buyers from afar. They include :
1. Pepper, onions and tomatoes – these are everyday items needed in almost every household to prepare sumptuous meals .
2. Groundnuts – bags of groundnuts could be seen packed, ready for loading to other towns and cities .
The people at the marketplace includes Yorubas, Fulanis, Igbo, and many other tribes .
The sellers were friendly and accommodating… ranging from the suya seller to the pepper sellers, and other commodities sellers.
