Sunday Market is not stranger many people here and this one place tourists will like to visit as you can see many handicrafts, delicacies, vegetables, fruits, meat, seafood and many more and also all the races in Sarawak doing business side by side harmoniously.
Some of the the traders come all the way down from Lundu, Serian and so on to trade there for the weekend. They will stay overnight at the market by sleeping in their lorry or van or make shift bed at the stall.
This is one place I would recommend you to visit but don’t ask me to bring you there if I happened to be your “tourist guide” *LOL*
I don’t like to go there because I hate crowds and I had some sort of phobia going there due to something that happened to me there few years back. Not only that it’s so damn hard to find parking!
The last time I was there was last year. After so many years of not going there, finally I went with my parents last year after one of my classes because I wasn’t driving and I didn’t want to trouble my dad to send me home and then go to Sunday Market again. So I tagged along and took some photos which I forgot all about it until today.
Then again, I don’t want to go there if possible!
This market starts on every Saturday evening and ends its operation on Sunday noon. My parents go there every Saturday evening to do some marketing but according to them, things at Sunday Market now aren’t as cheap as it used to anymore, there are other places that sell cheaper. Still, they never miss paying the market a visit to buy part of our food supplies for the next 5-6 days which are cheaper, those expensive ones, they would buy it at some other place on Sunday morning such as from Petanak and Stutong Market.
