Nigeria: 2018 Òjé-Ibadan & Òjé-Ẹdẹ Market Days – Tola Adenle

The market days for the two Oje markets at Ibadan and Ẹdẹ for 2018 are here, and as always, the delay is due to my absence from Nigeria at this time, & as always, I owe a debt of gratitude to a sister, Ṣade, who made multiple trips to the open air market before she finally could purchase a copy earlier this week.

Please ensure you cross-check with friends or family at home in Nigeria to find out if a market day would hold because if it clashes with Moslem festivities, it won’t. Most of the weaving is done around Oyo North and areas that have large Moslem populations. Anyway, the celebrations of the Eids can easily be checked by those of us who are non-Moslems on the web these days.

And remember, most sellers know exactly how many pieces are needed for various wearing apparel: male/female.

Happy Shopping, TOLA.
