Review of Phsar Nath Market

Phsar Nath Market
Ranked #34 of 53 things to do in Battambang
Attraction details
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Psar Nath (or Central Market) is located in the middle of Battambang city. This is, however, not the biggest market here - which happens to be Psar Boueng Chhouk located a short distance away.
Housed in an old french colonial styled building, this market has both a wet section as well as an area selling clothes and other things.
This market is really interesting early in the morning with meat and vegetable vendors selling right outside the market and makes for some amazing and interesting photography opportunities.

Battambang is noted mostly for its colonnaded shophouse architecture, but right in the middle of the old town is Phsar Nath, a French modernist market. Built in the 1930s by the same architects who designed the famous central markets in Phnom Penh and Saigon, it is a very graceful example of late colonial design. There are two halves of the market, probably dividing it into wet and dry sections. Flanked on all sides by French-era shophouses, it is has become the city's most easily recognizable landmark. It remains a good place to try cheap, tasty local food.
