Somewhat different in character from the markets are a couple of genteel, upmarket bazaars, although their atmosphere is equally interesting.
The Dutch Reformed Church has a bazaar (entry US$0.40/Kw2,000 per person) on the last Saturday of each month from 08.30 to 12.30. Find it about 4km east of Ridgeway on Kabulonga Road, past Bishop's Road and towards Ibex Hill. It's quite a focal point for Zambia's growing Afrikaans community, whilst also attracting a large number of local expats. Expect gifts and crafts, from jewellery to hand-made clothing, as well as various foodstuffs – from good biltong to Indian snacks – not to mention furniture and even cosmetics. It's friendly and relaxed so do sit down for coffee and cakes. You can watch the people go by, and try a koeksuster – a delicious and traditional sweet twisted pastry.
There are occasional indoor flea markets held at the National Sports Development Centre. They normally have about 50 stalls with a variety of handmade crafts and open between 09.00 and 13.00 on a Saturday. There is secure parking, refreshments are always available, and entry is a nominal Kw1,000 per adult.
