Created in 1965 on the people’s initiative, the market bears the name of the quarter named after the mother of the former President, Marien N’Gouabi. It is built by a Chinese company Dahua Engineering, and comprises 4 pavilions made of 4 columns of 918 concrete stalls 1.2m long and 1m wide. Built according to required standards, the market comprises among others: a water tank supplied by SNDE and by a borehole; public toilets; administrative toilets; a refuse storage space; taps reserved for washing certain food stuff like vegetables and fresh fish.

Close to 815 traders waited impatiently for the opening of this new market. « We no longer believed in the realisation of this promise from my daughter, our deputy. We had lost hope, but today we are glad to see this jewel which she has put at our disposal. We shall be in good conditions » declared Ngafouni, president of the market committee.

After cutting the symbolic ribbon consecrating the official opening of the market, the Deputy Mayor of Brazzaville, Hugues N’Ngouélondélé, Honourable Claudia Ikia Sassou N’Guesso as well as several administrative authorities made a guided tour of the market. As for the traders, they are happy that these structures protect them against bad weather and has come to put an end to the bad practice of selling food stuff on the ground which is the source of infectious and intestinal diseases.
