The Swahili word for this type of outside shop, or stall, is genge. A genge is usually a very basic structure made of wood, with a tin roof, which sells general items such as onions, tomatoes, chilli, oil, rice, and dried fish. This is the kind of place local people send their children to fetch something when they are in the middle of cooking the evening meal. In these situations, they usually do not have time to go all the way to the market to buy the missing ingredient.
