The market place is a public space that habits the buying and selling of products and goods in large and small quantities. Congestion has become a more reoccurring problem in market buildings as it serves as a public building that temporarily houses large numbers of people. In Nigeria, several studies have showed that congestion is higher around market areas. A way of addressing the issue is with the design of adequate circulation within and around the market place. Therefore, the study investigated the circulation plan on selected ultramodern markets in Nigeria with a view to designing an all-inclusive circulation efficient one. To achieve this, Case studies were selected among major ultramodern markets in Lagos state and the Federal Capital territory. Data collection instrument used were observation schedule and questionnaires. The observation schedule was used to identify and assess elements of circulation implemented in the ultramodern markets. The survey used the stratified random sampling method to select the respondents to which the questionnaires were administered. The data obtained were analysed using the STATISTICS 2021 IBM SPSS (Statistic Social Sciences Package) software. Results revealed that some elements were considered more in design than others while some elements were below standard for adequate and progressive movement of users through the markets. Also users were unsatisfied with certain elements of circulation implemented in the ultramodern markets.
