- A Nigerian lady living in the UK has made a video of Barking Market in the foreign country that could pass off as a Nigerian market
- Local food items like okra, stockfish, and pepper were on full display as people passed by while trades went on

Peckham market looking like Lagos
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a young Nigerian lady, Fadekemi, in the UK shared a video of a market in Peckham as she labelled the place "trenches".
Playing a Nigerian song in the background, Fadekemi showed a place called "The Linda Beauty". She said the salon is quite famous around the area.
Moving from the place, she filmed a public restaurant that had Nigerian food on display. Some metres away from that place were common things like tubers of yam and bunches of plantain that are common sights in Nigerian markets.
