Lake Nokoué – Ganvié: Floating Market

Concrete pillars sunk into the bottom of the lake are covered with a corrugated tin roof. Market vendors, their goods neatly organized in their canoe, sit under the roof and wait for shoppers to arrive, usually by canoe. In the foreground the woman’s canoe contains, starting from the left: woven hats; plastic basins; woven baskets; bags of charcoal; bars of soap; bags of beans and rice; bottles of vegetable oil; bottles of palm oil; a basin of rice or gari; bottles of liquid soap.
