Where to buy foreign fruits and vegetables in Nigeria (Lagos)

Alhaji sanni & Alhaji Ibrahim (Lagos)
So i've lived in this little town all my life. I call the town little because practically everybody knows everybody.
When i do shop for fresh cooking items i.e fruits & vegetables, i do it at the local market known as "Agboju market" located within Amuwo Odofin LGA especially since most of the things i need often could be found there. To me, its like a large outdoor mall where you could get every service you need in one space. Overtime, i've been getting lots of mails asking where to get certain fruits and vegetables which are scarce to find here in Nigeria Such as Mint leaves(peppermint leaves), Strawberries, Leek, Cinnamon, Blackberries e.t.c. Due to the amount of requests, i decided to do a little street foodie waka to show you some of the foreign vegetables mentioned and where i get mine.

The first stop i made was to Alhaji Sanni & Alhaji ibrahim's vegetable Kiosk. They both sell Vegetables (Indigenous and foreign) and they've been doing it for over 15 years. So, if you need Vegetables, Herbs (mint leaves a.k.a Naa Na(arabic) included ) e.t.c, You can reach them on (Alhaji Sanni <08023774890> & Alhaji ibrahim <08140377381>) to know what's available or to Order.

Lady B (Lagos)
The next stop i made was to Lady B's Apples and Fruits also located at the local market. She sells Fruits (mostly Foreign) as you'd see in the pictures below. So, if you need Foreign Fruits, you could reach her on (Lady B <07037114735> & <07040021766>) to know what's available or to Order.


Here are some pictures Below

    I think the title is misleading, it's says where to buy fruits in Nigeria, but u only discussed one state,which I think is Lagos, but I don't know the place cos I don't stay in Lagos. Maybe the title should be where to buy fruits in Lagos. I stay in Abuja
