Overview
More
Approximately 38 craft stalls from rural communities, ethnic groups and projects sell Namibian handicraft here, which range from jewellery to carved tree roots. We have the freshest Namibian food and best cheesecake and apple crumble in town! Our Craft Cafe is known all over the world for its stylish and excellent food. We support Namibian micro and small enterprises, and contribute to increase income through the sale of Namibian craft. Over 4,000 producers and their families derive an income from sales of their craft. We support Namibian design and product development, which is reflected in our large range of unique and quality products. We encourage the use of environmentally friendly products and sustainable utilization of Namibian natural resources. Vendors inside the Namibia Craft Centre may stock up to 5% of non-Namibian, but African handi-craft. No goods from outside the continent may be sold inside the Craft Centre. Some handi-craft and materials are hard to come by in Namibia, which is why we have made this concession. Staff should be able to tell you exactly the origin of most goods.

We went here just before Christmas. They were selling the most beautiful Christmas decorations. Just a pity that they are so pricey. I would recommend taking your time looking through all the craft stalls. There is also a coffee shop inside, so take a break...More

Sadly we only found one or two shops open at the market on a Sunday morning before we had to leave Windhoek at 10am. One was a textile / clothes shop and the other offered a range of curio jewellery at fairly reasonable prices. We...More

As many 'African' arts and crafts you could possibly want under one roof. Plan to spend half a day here, taking your time looking through all that is in offer is worth it. Suggest also popping in at the shop tucked away to the left...More

In local terms, pricey. But if you are used to paying in Euros and Dollars, it will feel like value. Perfect place to pick up some African curios, some crafed in Namibia and most of it imported from neighbouring countries. A great place to run...More

This facility hosts a variety of venders selling their handmade products. Its very authentic and made with utmost care and precision. You will surely find a little souvenir to take back home reminding you of the warmth of the Namibian people.
