I have been to numerous markets in S.E. Asia and this market was by far the worst one I have visited. Unless you are looking to kill a few hours on a rainy day it is not worth visiting.

Indoor market with good veg section, and other foodstuffs, but the rest is fairly low quality consumer goods. Useful if you have forgotten some cosmetics, or toiletries. Mildly interesting.
