The Colours of the Satok Sunday Market

I went to the Sunday Market at Satok on one fine morning for a street shooting with my Jedis #001, #002 & #005. The Sunday Market started off as a place for the native people to sell their jungle produce but it has evolved into a large-scale open-air market over the years. It has now become one of the tourist attractions in Kuching. You can find anything you need for the household here; from food to ointment.


Colourful sandals for the fashion-minded.


More colourful sandals.


Bracelets made from beads with the motifs of the native people.


More bead bracelets.


Bags with colourful design for those who are fashion-minded again.


These primary-colour trays and buckets provide great colour contrast for a photography subject.


The Humpty Dumpties.


The making of the 'apam balik', a kind of pancake garnished with ground peanuts.


The finished 'apam balik'. Guess how many I gobbled up?


Salted fishes.


Salted-fish slices.


Dried shrimps.


Slabs of roasted pork.


Long beans, tomatoes and chilies.


The 'snake-skin' fruit.


Ointment made from seahorses.


The Japanese sweet potatoes.


Fish-cake fritters or 'keropok lekor'.


Packets of colourful biscuits.


The 'cempedak' which is related to jackfruit.

I've managed to show only a small part of the market. You should visit it yourself in order to feel the scale. :)
