    Cheko Market

    This is the old Kuching Wet Market a.k.a. Cheko Market which was built during the Brooke era for the Malay community to market their jungle and domestic produce. Today the old market continues to bustle with activity, with traders coming in to unload their goods in the early hours of the morning, to prepare for the daily morning rush.

    Walk around this market for a view of things that you do not normally see in the city. It's generally a market with the additional stalls selling jungle produce like jungle ferns ("bidin") and jungle durians. The market actually starts on Saturday afternoon/evening and lasts through Sunday. I went on a Saturday evening during the fasting month of Ramadhan im mid September 2007.

    I visited 2 markets in Kuching, one is their Sunday Market the other is their morning market. The Sunday Market is bigger and has more variety of local fruits and vegetables. I bought 'Belacan' for my mum for her cooking. It's taste really good fried with Vegetables.

    A variety of chilli peppers

    Along the side of the river is the market area. There are lots of colourful stalls selling an amazing variety of fruits and vegetables. The atmosphere here was more relaxed than at other Asian markets we have visited. I recommend trying some of the fruits. Mangosteen and Rambutan are particularly good and I've never seen them in the UK.

    An interesting place to stop and observe local vegetables, etc. One stall that cought my eye was the spice seller. There were 9 different spices, ground up and on display in mounds, and you buy what you need for a few days.

    Walk Kuching's market

    by kphstar Written Aug 6, 2005

    Along the river's edge, you'll find a large open market selling Kuching's freshest food. Here the locals shop for all there weeky needs. It's crowded and chaotic. And the smell, well, as Kim Wilde said "take my breath away".

    At the river front is a very nice market with vegetables, spices, fish and meat. Absolutely nice to visit when you stay in Kuuching.

    Kuching had a colourful market by the waterfront across from the tourist office. There was also a large Friday market. Both were good venues for taking pictures.

    The market of Kuching is as colourful as in any other part of the world. Only here, many of the foods and other items on sale were totally unknown to me.

    Satok sunday market

    Best to go on a Saturday late afternoon when it's not so hot. Hundreds of folks selling fresh local produce, seafood and delicacies. If you enjoy hawkers' food you can find them by Satok Road.
