Palm oil or otherwise, red oil is one of the most consumed items in Nigeria. We have previously written an article on how to set up a successful palm oil business and this article is for people looking for markets where they can get red oil cheap in Nigeria.
Red oil is a popular cooking item made from palm fruit. It is edible and among other uses, can be used in food manufacturing, as biofuel and even in the making of beauty products.
They are in very high demand and the general costs vary with location and the time of the year. While palm fruits are almost always available, the availability varies with time and season and so are the products gotten from it.
Where To Buy Palm Oil For Cheap In Nigeria
There are a lot of markets where you can buy red oil for cheap in the country, but I will be limiting my article to these 10.
For the people who are not from Igbo land, there are four market days namely Eke, Orie, Afor and Nkwo. These four days are like the seven days of the regular week but this time around, the week is only for four days.
You can refer to any online calendar to find out which day each of them is. If I say a market is Afor like the first in my list, then the most popular market day will be Afor day and it is the best day to visit it.
There is a market for every day and if a town doesn’t trade on a day you intend to visit, you can easily make another choice.

The Afor Ogidi is located close to Banana Junction in Amaifeke, Orlu. It is a popular market and you can get bulk red oil, among other items.
