Morning Market Buys and Bargains


When you first encounter the hustle and bustle of the Morning Market, the thing that hits you is the visual impact of it. You walk down in between rows of colorful fruits and vegetables lose yourself in a sea of traders selling all types of manner of merchandise.

So many things to buy and so cheaply too. For the ladies, you can walk about and get a handbag, sunglasses, clothing, hair accessories and more. Guys fancy remote control cars and other toys, CDs and DVDs, watches and lighters and souveniers get them here.

It's really a treat because you really never know what some of the traders may have on sale at that particular morning. A carnival like atmosphere if there is a medicine man peddling his wares. Impromtu auction and I have even seen cooking demonstrations in one of my visits.

Penang is famous for its Nutmeg products, preserved mango, special coffee blend, bbq meat, dried guava, "dragonball" biscuits among the sought after items. The list goes on. So you get an idea of what to buy home for family and friends.


Bargain! Bargain! Bargain!
