The dynamics of life that never stops, that's what caught obviously if we enter Badung Market, or better known as the "Pasar Badung/Peken Badung". This traditional market that located in the center of Denpasar city was built in 1977. Various kinds of activities we can see here, from the merchants,buyers, tukang suun (people who lift groceries), cleaning staff, etc..
Like most other traditional markets, this markets selling various food needs, such as rice, meat, fruit, vegetables, etc.. Moreover here also sells a variety of means for prayers of Hindu people in Bali, such as flowers, Canang, Incense, etc..
Millions of transactions occur almost daily in this market, makes this market one of the largest traditional market in Bali. This market also open 24 hours. Many traders from outside denpasar who trade here, even 1AM merchants were coming all the way here to have a place to trade at the market yard.
Feels incomplete if only discuss Badung Market, separated by a river, but connected by a small bridge stands a building with four floors just named "Kumbasari market." Unlike the Badung Market, Kumbasari Market also sells a variety of handicrafts and textiles. It can be said as a miniature Market Sukawati Gianyar.
Unlike its neighbors, Kumbasari market is not open 24 hours later than 6 pm all the shops have started closing. Kumbasari market is more cleaner than Badung Market. Perhaps because of commodity goods that are sold differently.
However Badung Market and Kumbasari Market still be markets that gives life to the merchants who persistent and tireless. as well as buyers who remained friendly with the traditional market prices.
