Current state of Takoradi Market Circle verses how it would look like after ongoing reconstruction.

The Takoradi Market Circle is a market in Takoradi, the third largest city of Ghana. Takoradi Market Circle is the commercial and economic hub of Ghana's Western Region. The market got its name due to the large circle in which it is situated; the stores of the market were built to form the shape.

Currently the Takoradi Market is under reconstruction, the redevelopment and reconstruction of the Market and its associated infrastructure will yield the following benefits; address the underlying cause of fire outbreaks through appropriate specifications (including providing fire detection and combatting systems), upgrade of the drainage system to alleviate flooding and unsanitary conditions, improve social infrastructural facilities such as the toilets, covered drainage networks and health post and improve waste collection and disposal.

The market was planned and built by city engineers to form the nucleus of trading for the new Takoradi city. The city became bustling after the building of the Takoradi Harbour, which served as a major export centre because of high export activity, many people migrated to the city for employment and this increase warranted the setting up the market. It was to be built at a site that was to be easily accessible.
