Newcomers to the city will soon start exploring the many unique sights to be found, including the unusual offerings of the fetish market and bustling 3-story Lomé Grand Market, selling all types of day-to-day items, from clothing to fresh produce. Residences can be found in the west of the city facing the sea, where fishermen launch their boats in a decidedly quieter area than the main center. Much of Lomé's economy is focused on the import and export industry, in particular coffee, cocoa, cotton, and palm oil. The city also has an oil refinery, the University of Lomé, and a growing tourist industry.
