Recommended to visit this local market. Walked from the outdoor areas selling fruits to the center area selling veg on the 1st floor, dry goods on the 2nd floor and 3rd floor textiles and clothings. There is also an area for cooked food. The poultry and seafood stalls were close today, and so were most of the stalls. Not sure if it’s because of Hari Raya Haji on Monday.

Ventilation within the market was generally good and most stalls have fans on however as the day time temperature reached 33 degrees celsius hence can be quite hot while walking in the market.

Managed to buy some fruits to bring back to the hotel to eat.

The overall place looks interesting, variety but perhaps cleanliness can be slightly improved. Nonetheless, worth visiting and trying out the local
dishes.

This is a very interesting market to visit. Most of the stalls are managed by women. You can buy many local stuffs here from daily necessities, clothes, food, fruits etc. Interestingly, some of the things here are quite cheap. We even saw turtle eggs for sale. There's also local tobacco available, some facial pellets for smooth skin, keropok etc.
It's a one of the must-see places when in Kota Bharu

Definitely a good place to shop local products. Though, the cleanliness of this market could be upgraded. It is considered the centre of KB

I have heard so much about the market. So, my partner agreed to visit the place with me. We parked a distance from the market & walked for about 10 minutes before arriving by foot. There were so many people outside the market.

Pasar Siti Khadijah was officially opened in 1985. It has 4 levels in an octagon shaped building. The main attraction of this market is due to the majority of its sellers or traders which are women. Hence, it was called “Siti Khadijah”, the name of Prophet Muhammad’s wife who was a wealthy business woman herself.

We walked til we saw the centre of the ground floor. You can find many wet items such as fish, chicken, meat & vegetables. However, since we arrived quite late in the afternoon, many sellers were busy packing up.

We took the stairs up to the 1st floor. The 1st floor is dedicated towards the selling of dry items. Amongst the many items is serunding, a local favourite. Serunding is floss which can be made from various protein source such as chicken, meat or fish. It is usually spicy & sweet. We stopped by a few shops & bought packets of serunding & fish crackers or “keropok” in the national language for our families. We also saw many local sweet Kelantan desserts being sold & sellers selling real & fake gold jewellery.

We ventured to the 2nd floor where non-food items were being sold. We bought a couple of “batik” material & a “songket” for my father. “Batik” is a technique where wax is being applied on a cloth to make designs. “Songket” is a hand-woven piece of fabric consisting of either cotton, polyester or silk as the base material with gold or silver threads.

I was able to bargain & the seller was kind enough to let me pay online instead of cash for some of the purchases. Happy with our purchases, we decided to leave before more damage is being made to our bank accounts.

The market was full of stuff. Local authentic stuff. We bought some local spices, local delights & clothing textiles.
.
The place has 3 floors. On the ground is where the wet market it where they sell fish, chicken, vegetables & fruits. If you wish to buy dry food stuff goes to 2nd floor the price is more cheaper at the upper floor. Local spices like Kuzi, kari & etc2 can be bought there.
.
On the 3rd floor is the place you can buy textiles. Local textiles & stuff.
.
On the second floor we tried the local food at the food court. Cheap & tasty.
.
Overall its a local market. Good place to buy local items.
