Historic "Big Market"

Big Market is one of the historical monuments in Sierra Leone. Located in Freetown, it was originally built in 1861 by an Afro-West Indian Builder, Charles Hazelborg. It sits at the heart of Freetown, founded by African American settlers in 1792, who gained their freedom from fighting for the British during the American Revolutionary War. Big Market is a perfect illustration to the dynamic history and diversity of Freetown.  Market Traders, especially Women Traders and Arts & Crafts Traders are at the heart of our brand.
