A good place and perfect place to buy Ikan terubuk masin. A place that can find locals people selling their product at lower prices than in the city. Locals are friendly.

I was expecting an open-air market but they have now been moved to a proper covered market, complete with toilets and food centre. The market is divided to wet/dry sections, vegetable, seafood and sundries including native produce are all available here. Great place for photo opportunities and even I came across a few items I have never heard of before... More

The souvenirs are slightly cheaper than those at the waterfront bazaar. The wet market has all the things you need to bring back home. From the famous sarawak layer cake to 'terubuk masin'.

The market is divided into various sections, with each section selling fresh and dried produce. There's also locally made food. The weekend market section is outdoors, with vendors setting up their wares on open lots. The stalls in the permanent structures carry all types of produce, fresh fruits (local and imported), vegetables, meats, chicken, fish etc. There's a section dedicated... More

Probably one of the cleanest most neatest Asian local markets I have ever been to! The variety of local produce you can find here is amazing. I bought some bell peppers, bario brown rice, stingless bee honey, sago-derived products and the kueh lapis Sarawak from the market. Great value for shopping and highly recommended to soak in the local Kuching... More

While in Kuching, take the bus to Kubah on a Sunday morning. The Sunday market will ravish you with its colours, fruits, eateries and as a bonus, the buskers playing all afternoon! Sit back in the open-air cafeteria with a teh tarik and listen to the band - passers-by join them to sing their favorite song, live karaoke!
