Unless you want to buy some dry seafood auch as prawns, salted fish, dried scallop and etc. Is more like market that sells vege n fish. Beware as the floor is wet and some seller trying to sell you fake/cheap belts or sunglasses.

Been KK many times but first time visited this market. Mango and vegetables are selling cheap in this place. Quite crowded in the evening.

This is a nice place to visit to experience what it is like to be in Sabah. Visited for the first time, felt happy. Many merchandise to buy but the food here is a big no for those who are fussy about cleanliness like me

Many repetitive stalls but I preferred this to the Sunday market as they would haggle and Sunday only a few stalls would. We bought key rings and woven bags. Food area really smells as there is a lot of dried fish!
