THE EPE FISH MARKET
One of the most popular places to visit in Lagos, is the Epe fish market which was just a small fish market
in the middle of Epe.
Oluwo retail market, Epe is the home to Lagos’ largest fish and sea food market, where you can buy
anything from makerel to Snails, catfish, crocodiles, alligators, snakes and, pangolins.
On November 10, 1989, Mr. M. A. Olagbaiye, the only administrator, commissioned the construction of
the fish market. Epe town is a tranquil place, and as it is a coastal area along the lagoon, fishing is one of
its primary industries. Three hours seperates Epe town from Lagos Island. Epe is a northern seaside town
that shares a border with Ogun state.
Access to the Epe fish market is available through the road from Ajah, Lekki and Ijebu-Ode, waterways
using a boat ride, and a railway line which is in the works.
