Sorry, Ladies, for the delay in getting the year’s market days. As promised, it’s being posted before the deadline I gave myself – March 1! As my time away from Nigeria has included not less than the first two months of each year for several years, it’s meant that I must be physically present in the country to attend a market day, the only way to buy the calendars which are hawked all over Oje-Ibadan on market days. While I have been at OJE-ẸDẸ a couple of times, I did not take in what was going on by hawkers each of the two or three times.
Please ensure you check it before venturing to Ibadan or Ẹdẹ, the two big markets for aṣọ òkè in Yorubaland. Of course they are also available in regular markets and boutiques. And remember, a market day, though specified in the almanac, does not guarantee that markets will open as they may be closed when market days clash with Muslim holidays. In Nigeria, there are public holidays on major Christian holy days like Christmas, Good Friday and Easter Monday as well as Prophet Mohammed’s birthday and the two Eids.
