  • Village Market is one of the best locations in Nairobi. The ambience is great, there are many shopping and dining options here. Also on the only bowling alley in Kenya is found at the village market. Make a point of visiting and you will have the best time. Also good to bring your kids, they will have fun
  • Village Market is just nice easy place to be where there's not too much rush. There strategies of marketing the mall is awesome. Having Cooking classes for both adults and kids, the Salsa nights, and so on. Their yearly Halloween party has not been matched to date. Probably the only mall with games for adults, namely Bowling. I think they should have considered bringing back the waterslides.
