Makola Market is a renowned market place and shopping district in the centre of the city of Accra, the capital of Ghana.

The market, dominated by women traders, sells fresh produce, manufactured and imported foods, clothes, shoes, tools, medicines, and pots and pans.

Makola Market is currently under the observation of Transaid which is developing a project Transport and Trade for Market Women which is designed to improve the livelihoods and security of female market traders through the development of Women’s Transports Co-operatives in Accra.

Presently most women use “tro tros”, passenger mini-buses or taxis to fetch their goods to market. The co-operatives aim to reduce transport costs, bringing economic benefit, and providing a fast, reliable and secure means of transporting their goods for the female traders at Makola.

There are individual Makola Markets in various parts of Ghana and the United States.
