The Warwick Market is an amazing area of vendors and sellers with items ranging from food, phones, clothes, ornaments, shoes, herbal remedies, and more. It has been around for decades and is still thriving. The city of Durban has tried its best to keep this important area alive by having the community help with protecting its vendors and its expansion. The Warwick Market has changed in the last two decades as more infrastructure has swept through the area and changed the makeup of its surroundings.
When walking through the markets there are people everywhere as they use their salesmen pitches to sell their items. The variety of sellers who could either be selling clothes like hats, sunglasses, watches, shoes, rings, earrings, backpacks, and more. When going past many of them, instantly their salesmen mode comes out as they give you a charming smile and a pitch talk to win you over. They love to show people the wonderful items they have and the wonders it will do for them.
Going deeper into the market, you will find traditional sellers who have herbs and many other items to sell. They have animal skins, potions, made at home sunscreen, and oils. The people are very friendly as hospitality runs deep in the area. The shops and vendors all have similar items but each with their own way of making it that makes it unique for the sellers. There are even places where traditional clothing is sold as lines of clothing of dresses and suits are displayed.
The entire market is very upbeat and enjoyable as people from all over come to buy from there. There is places to eat with plenty of restaurants and food markets to buy freshly made fruits, vegetables, and other home needs. The market is absolutely great place to go to see what it has to offer and see the amazing people of Durban.
