The Bangsar Sunday Market takes place next to the Bangsar Village Shopping Mall, attracting a large crowd for its extensive and affordable offerings of fresh produce, seafood, flowers and local dishes. Located within the prominent Telawi commercial district, this street market actually starts operating at 15:00, but the best time to visit is in the evening as temperatures are much cooler then.
Held every Sunday until 23:00, the Bangsar Sunday Night Market is mostly frequented by the neighbourhood’s expat community as vegetables, fruits and seafood sold here is relatively cheap compared to nearby supermarkets and shopping malls. It’s also a popular spot for those looking to enjoy authentic local dishes as the majority of restaurants and cafés in Bangsar cater to an international palate.
What to Buy and Eat at Bangsar Sunday Market
There are numerous food stalls selling Malaysian dishes, desserts and snacks – standouts include the asam laksa (Nyonya noodles in spicy and tangy fish broth), putu bambu (pandan and palm sugar rice cake steamed in bamboo), fried kuey teow (Chinese flat noodles) and assorted kuih (Malay desserts).
A 20-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur City Centre, the Bangsar Sunday Market is surrounded by trendy bistros, sports bars and late-night cafés that offer live music, extensive alcoholic offerings and stylish locals – a good alternative to Changkat Bukit Bintang’s touristy scene. The most convenient way to get there from the city centre is by LRT – alight at the Bangsar stop and the market is five minutes away by taxi.
