To market, to market.

We have just a couple of days left to savor the sights and sounds of Kuching before we head back to Penang. And as we are staying near the local food market we decide to take a stroll through, do a spot of people watching, and to check out the local produce.

The first thing that strikes us is the beautiful array of fruit and vegetables, all the usual favorites are there, tomatoes, cucumbers and bananas, along with a tropical feast of the weird and wonderful. Things we haven’t seen before and all arranged like an artists pallet.

There are beautiful bundles of ginger flowers, lotus roots, lemongrass bundles along side bitter-melon and all kinds of mangoes, the displays are wonderful and put together with a great deal of care.

Passing through the display we’re offered up all kinds treats to sample in a bid to get us to buy some of the produce, sadly we don’t have anywhere to store anything and have to decline.

Down the other end is the meat and fish section, and it’s here where we get to see where our meat really comes from, in all it’s raw beauty.

Below you can find a photo gallery of the Kuching markets.
