  • It is home to an array of goodies and offers everything from fresh fruit and vegetables, fresh meat and seafood to dried foodstuffs and spices and cooked food. Oh, and let’s not forget the many stalls selling local wear. You can pretty much find anything here! It’s an interesting place and is very colourful and local in character and is apparently KL’s largest wet market. My kids had their noses scrunched throughout with all the unfamiliar sights and smells around them! Why 3 stars? 5 stars for the comprehensive variety of products. 2 stars for cleanliness, or should I say, lack thereof. My local family don't like shop here because of that!
  • You can find all kinds of ingredients as well.as other kitchen needs but problwm is not enough car park, and irresponsible people park just anywhere they wish, like in the middle.of the road and causes congestion.
  • mkn durian kampong. 2 biji rm15. tambah lgi sebijik rm20. size durian sedang2 je. ok le dr xde kan..
  • looking for fruits with good price? than go to chow kit market
  • Very large and typical local market, not for the faint of heart they do butcher animals and display all the body parts for purchase
