We came here to kill time after reached Penang at 8am. Many stalls selling handicrafts and food such as Penang Laksa, cakes, drinks, pastries and bread … etc. there’s also buskers at the centre stage.

You can buy food from these stalls and eat there. There’s plenty of tables and-chairs surrounding the area.

Nice place to hang out during weekends.

Every Sunday from 11 o'clock the old bus depot near Komtar hosts a craft and food market popular with tourists and locals. Many are selling selfmade artefacts, jewellery, candles, paintings and then there is the guy with a collection of incredible live insects hiding among leafs in terrariums. A large selection of Asian dishes is cooked on the premises by eager home chefs.

We visited on a Sunday. Live acoustic music played in the courtyard. Many food and drink stalls were available. We sampled the Tibetan found. Nicely spiced. The idea of the market is to see and try new things. I would recommend it for couples and families of all ages. A prticularly striking photography exhibit was featured. Worth the trip

Nice arts and cafes there. Enjoy the private space and quietness on weekdays. Weekend is much more bustling according to other reviewers. Visited Bricklin Cafe & Bar and Osmanthus Alley which served really good food and drinks.

Went here twice, on a Saturday and Sunday.

When I went there on Saturday, there was a pre-loved market. There were a number of stalls selling pre-loved clothes. But on Sunday, there was a craft/art market. Also, on both days there are a few stalls that sell drinks and desserts.

It is an overall good place to hang out with friends or family as you can sit in the open area next to the market.

It's a cool place to chill. Watching some of the activities is fun if you have time to kill. The place has a good cafe and also an outdoor Coffe truck. A wine bar with Oysters on the menu.
