Satok Weekend Market
The affectionately-called Satok Market, which is operational on Saturdays and Sundays, is now moved from Jalam Satok to new purpose-built premises just across the river, Medan Niaga Satok, effective 1st Jan 2013. It is renowned for the native ladies who set up shop here selling fruit and vegetables, but there are also many good Chinese and Malay stalls.
Goods on offer include handicrafts, forest produce (including delicious wild honey), pets of all descriptions, orchid plants, live fish, and a whole range of local snacks and delicacies.
The market is a must for weekend visitors, as it is very colourful and always teeming with shoppers. The best time to go is Saturday night or early Sunday morning.
It is now located adjacent to Kubah Ria, a popular eatery fronting the Sarawak river.
