Discovering Watt market, in Calabar

Little catering this morning ?

Woah, feeling vegetarian today...
(must be antelope meat)

Well, not exactly ready to cook...

Some grasscutter ? can't eat this if you already saw one alive, too cute
(but I didn't when I taste them - it was good!)
This highly priced bush meat is considered as a delicacy.


Ok, today it will be macrobiotic diet !


Yam is as common in Nigeria as potato in Europe
His nigerian name is adamwanga, which means Adamo's food,
but not the Adam you think



Periwinkle (thanks to Sol) is how these small marine snails are called.
They seem to be the local most common winkles

I think the name you are asking for is 'periwinkle'.

Its a shell fish or creature that is eaten in abundance in south eastern Nigeria.

Hope that helps.
