While it makes for a nice Sunday walk (albeit potentially too hot in June), we didn't really find anything that was handmade or otherwise "original." The prices were also somewhat high and barely negotiable.

We also noticed some pets were for sale (puppies, kittens, hamsters, bunnies). However, they were kept in terrible conditions and were clearly under a lot of stress and discomfort.

Finally, there were fruits and fish for sale. However, the fish looked and smelled quite bad (as in, probably spoiled).

It is a must visit place during the trip to KK. The Sunday morning market only open on Sunday and origin is to let the farmers from around KK area to sell their product once a week. But now it has turn out to be a tourism market due to its specialty. Compare to 15 years back, current has more induatries product instead of farmers product. As of 2019 May, thr place lack of Tarap fruits smell in the market. I was informed that Tarap will be available in August and it is seasonal. During this visit, it is not the season and the Tarap cost RM 60/fruit.
Hope that we can see more genuine seller in the market (farmers, handicraft, local delicacies, and culture) instead of industry product.

For the tourist, it will make a good walk on Sunday morning. Noted was also some of the items sold here were above the Super Market prices.

Plenty of snacks, potted plants, clothing, hats, drinks, local pastry (kuehs), hardwares, coffee powders, etc.

Nothing special, same like everywhere in Asia. Very hot to walk around. But for tourist something to see if markets interests you.
