This market has recently moved and is now situated at Medan Niaga, it had so many fruit and vegetable stalls it was hard to know what was what but our guide James Chee of Saratours was there to guide us through what everything was and the stallholders were happy to let us taste a variety of different fruits.

We visited the market late on a Saturday afternoon - it is clean and has an interesting array of fresh fruit and fish but lacks atmosphere. I have been to many Asian markets and this is the least interesting and vibrant I have been to.

Foods & drinks are available. You can buy... More

Having seen the old version at Jalan Satok, the new one at Medan Niaga Satok seems less exciting. Its is much neater now, but I prefer threading through the previous cramped crowded rows of stalls! When I was there Saturday evening, there were very few cooked food stalls - probably the presence of the hawker centre styled block means fewer... More

All sorts of local delicacies sold. Local produce and the famous salted fish. Open from saturday evening til sunday afternoon. Souvenirs can be bought here as well and you can see all the different ferns that can be eaten.

Don't waste your $6 taxi ride (each way) going there unless you are shopping for groceries at the food market. We went around noon on a Saturday and there really are very few booths selling anything other than food. You are better off visiting the stores on the main bazaar.

The Sunday markets actually start on Saturday afternoon as all the sellers come in and set up their stalls then sleep at the markets in preparation for the big day starting at 5am on Sunday. These markets were a lot bigger than I expected. The fruit and vegetable section is fantastic, so many different fruits that can be hard to... More
