Traditional markets like the central market in Kumasi, ghana used lanes as the demarcation of the market and location of stalls. Before numbers were assigned to stalls, they were marked in lanes according to products that are sold in them. An example is the tomato lane where all types of tomatoes are sold and nothing else. One doesn't have to know any number to locate a stall but to know the product that is sold to be able to locate which lane you are looking for. So for instance, if a customer is looking to buy dry fish which was what my mom traded in at the central market, all they had to do was to go to the market and look out for the lane that had dried fish. Even though stalls in the central market in Kumasi, Ghana now have unique numbers, people still refer to them with their lanes and what they sell.
These lanes are full of life with the sound of poetic calls of the market women to attract customers into their stalls for business. Not only are the lanes dedicated to foodstuffs but also to ornaments like beads, earrings, headgears, etc. And all of them have different lanes assigned to them. looking from the outside, it may look crowded but the beauty from within is the unity in which business is conducted and how easy it is to meander through people to finish their daily shopping.
