Time Out says

This market has been in operation since the late 1800s and still continues to serve locals early in the morning. At the back is a wet market selling fresh meat, but the front is packed with tourists filling up on traditional sweets and pickles during the day. It’s a great spot for souvenirs like nutmeg snacks, and on their second floor, you’ll find secondhand books, funky items, and soak in the great atmosphere.

As featured in Time Out Penang's 50 things to do in Penang.
