The locals shop in bulk here. Almost no bargaining with the dried seafood we bought. As a matter of fact, not much bargaining here with the plates and bowls that I bought either. Pricey dried shrimp cost $45 a kilo. Fruit like grapes and apples seemed pricey too. Hot in here. Electricity went out 2x when we came. Passage ways are narrow. This is a food market mostly for locals and vendors. Won’t find many souvenirs here.

An unbelievably busy and local market, not a single tourist in sight. We were feeling brave and opted for the chicken broth with noodles from a small stall on the second floor. Whilst ordering this meal was incredibly difficult due to the language barrier, there was one helpful local who spoke good English and helped us to order. The soup was delicious and authentic. This market is far from just about food however, there was an entire floor devoted to shoes, make up and other beauty products. The ground floor seems to cater for fresh goods such as live chickens, hundreds of spit roast pigs, and other random items. Worth visiting this market just to see how the locals live, it’s quite different to Portobello Road/Spittafield!

If your looking for souvenirs then this isn’t the place for you
This is a real market selling everything for the locals
Don’t think o saw a T-shirt store and probably no DVDs
But if you want to see a real market this is authentic
Don’t expect much English to be spoken

Really bad traffic around this place just crossing the road was a challenge! Market itself is big and dirty, not really aimed for tourists probably best to avoid.

much better than the Central market or the Russian market. You find whatever you want here. This is where markets in other cities come to restock.

A real place to get a glimpse of the real non touristic life.

This is another well stocked and located market in Phnom Penh. Its about 10 minutes from the center of town by Tuk Tuk and carries a wide selection of merchandise. There is clothing - plastic kitchenware - food - hardware items in various catagories - for you electrical / hardware guys there's even wire to make transformers and a small electronics parts stall.You will also find some tools and shoes around the perimeter of the Market. There's a variety of stationary and additional jewelry stalls upstairs on the mezzanine floor.Dress cool - can be a bit warm inside.

This market and the surrounding streets is the best place to have a local food experience in Phnom Penh. In the day the market is busy and chaotic, and at night the area is full of local street food and restaurant stalls. The whole area appears to have been left untouched by the modernization of Cambodia, and all the side streets have pretty well the same local feel that they had when I first visited Phnom Penh in 1999

I prefer this market to Central Market as there is a bigger choice of goods for sale and most things are cheaper. It has an upper floor area too and caters more for the locals than tourists. Some people may find the place a bit too overcrowded and claustrophobic but it is definitely worth a visit. It is near to the Capitol bus station and the surrounding roads are very busy and noisy.

It is a typical local market and things here are all catered for the local people in Phnom Penh. It's big and have almost everything from wet market, dry market, food stalls, clothes, accessories and electronics. I wouldn't recommend purchasing electronics from here or even things like watches. If you're looking for souvenirs, there aren't any in this market. However, if you're looking for things like cheap clothes - you might be able to get them for cheap here. I'd recommend to go with a Cambodian friend as people here speak very little English. It's very busy and and you can walk from Central Market to Orussey Market if you're willing to battle through the crazy traffic and heat.

What to eat around here? - I wasn't able to eat anything by the street as I found it slightly dirty for me and my stomach so I walked elsewhere to get some food from a reliable place.

My visits to Orussey Market, Phnom Penh
Sandwiched between streets 182-141-166 and 111, this is my favourite large covered market in Phnom Penh. Not really a touristy place but excellent to visit if you want to experience the comings and goings of a traditional Khmer market.
It can get quite hot as you traverse the myriad passageways and the aroma of spices, dried fish, live fish squirming in a bowl awaiting someone’s dinner plate, dead pigs, live ducks and chickens, can certainly challenge your nostrils as you try to find your bearings. You could quite easily spend two or three hours here exploring all the floors but be wary of the many workers pushing sack barrows, delivering goods to the traders and out to purchasers ‘vehicles parked in the chaotic surrounding streets.
This is where locals purchase in bulk from a vast array of products including food, hardware, kitchenware, bedding, toys, fruit, vegetables, electronics, bracelets, lipsticks and ducks sold by the kilo. Unless you are buying in bulk, bargaining is not really too common here, but a good knowledge of Khmer might facilitate some discounting.
Not too many speak anything other than Khmer so have a pencil and paper at the ready for a quick drawing of what you need, better still, pull up an image on your smart phone. Be patient and you will find most people helpful and quite charming.
There are places to eat in Orussey but if you prefer western fare, a twenty-minute walk heading north-east will take you to the Sorya Center Point Shopping Mall.
