By combining the former wet market and the native Lembangan market in clean and hygienic new surroundings, the area contains a wide range of stalls offering all kinds vegetables, fruites, meat, general merchandise as well as food and drinks.

Highlights are the Iban ladies selling exotic fruits, jungle produce and handicrafts, and the Chinese poultry sellers who offer their live chickens and ducks neatly wrapped up in tubes fashioned from old newspapers.

The market can be leisurely covered on foot once you have arrived in Sibu town.
