The lovely and beautiful market is called Kiboswa market. It is located in a residential neighborhood at the Daraja Mbili intersection of the Kisumu-Kakamega route. The market was established in 2007 by the well-known women's organization Waste Pickers Support Organization after realizing there was potential for commerce in both Nyanza and Western. The most prevalent traders in the area are the Luo, Luhya, Nandi, and Agikuyu, who have also made investments in commerce. Kiboswa is situated near the boundary between Kisumu and Vihiga counties.

The main products marketed are small fish like tilapia and nile perch, which are common dishes in the region. The market also offers the sale of electronics, used clothing, lodging, and food items like oranges.

The main objective of the market is to create efficient and affordable markets in Western and Nyanza to increase business investment and job opportunities for the populace. As a result, more matatu companies and boda boda drivers are employed.
