Bali Markets

Traditional markets are vibrant and bustling affairs and that is what makes them so interesting. There's plenty going on in the myriad of stalls on either side of the main path that cuts through the markets. Just Remember to bargain, bargain!

  • Ubud Traditional Market: Located at the main intersection in Ubud, this is actually two markets at the same location. At the traditional market the locals come early to buy fruit and vegetable and food's stuff and other everyday items. This market starts at dawn, sometimes earlier. This market has great photo opportunities as well as a chance to shop like the Balinese. The artistic market west of the Food Market opens at 8:00am until about 6:00pm and some stalls into the night. Here you can buy sarongs, baskets, woven place mats, wooden bowls and a selection of other Balinese handicrafts and souvenirs.

  • Pasar Seni Sukawati Art Market Sukawati: Jalan Raya Sukawati, Sukawati Bali Sukawati is half way between Denpasar and Ubud and has a traditional art market on the main road and side streets. This market is so cheap, even the Balinese shop here. You can buy souvenirs from crafts villages all around the island but it specializes in woven baskets, batiks, wind chimes and Balinese umbrellas. Just remember to bargain to get the best buys!

  • Pasar Kumbasari: This is a four storey building in the middle of Denpasar on the west bank of the Badung river, just south of Jalan Gajah Mada. Denpasar can be challenging as it is noisy and hot, but the bargains at this market rival any on the island.

  • Pasar Seni Art Market: Tanah Lot temple is the most beautiful site in Bali. Many tourists come here to watch the sunset. However, if you want to shop and avoid the crowds come in the early morning around 8:00am when the shops first open. You will have the place to yourself. You will also find all sorts of Bali and Indonesian souvenirs, ranging from t-shirts and straw hats to paintings and handicrafts and don't forget the postcards that the little girls try to sell to you. Come see the temple but bring your rupiahs.

  • Candikuning Bedugul (fruit and flower market): Candikuning is a very colorful fruit and vegetable market in the Highlands of Bedugul. Here you can buy fresh mango, banana, papaya, avocado, orange, as well as various spices, flowers, vegetables. Behind the fruit stands you can buy handicrafts, paintings, and fabrics. It's a long way to go to just see the market, while you are there visit Pura Ulun Danu on the shores of Lake Bratan.
