In Nigeria, every town/city has its major market(s), and in Owerri it's the Owerri Market, which is not a single physical structure but rather a few multistory structures now accompanied by a series of surrounding streets where commercial shops and activities have taken over in a teeming mass. Weaving through the market's streets and paths are the wheelbarrow pushers, who port everything from onions (pictured here) to hair products, produce, and boxes of goods piled dangerously high. It's a frenetic space, and the details demonstrate the city of Owerri's local flavor and connections - for example, these onions, the seller said, come from Jos.
