Ethiopia: Key Afer Tribal Market

Once a week, a small town of Key Afer in the Lower Omo Valley holds a large market (the largest in Omo Valley) where three different tribes come together to buy and sell. The market brings together people from Tsemai, Hamer, and Bena tribes. Everything from fruits and vegetables to wood to honey and butter to silverware and animals is sold here – the open-air market brims with color and sound. Some are not tourist-friendly, but the vast majority of mostly women sellers are happy to pose for your pictures with their wares.
