Kanowit Market

Visiting the market and tamu in Kanowit is definitely an experience. The tamu is basically located beside the town's main market, just right below the Water Board's hill.

In the main market, there are a variety of fruits and vegetables been sold. Mostly sourced fresh from the wild. Most of the locals around this town congregate here to sell their produce.

Most of the fruits and vegetables found at the market and tamu are not widely available in the towns or cities. Some are so rare that I don't even know their names.

Rambutan is cheap and comes with thick flesh. RM3 for a bundle. I heard some of the locals here actually own the rambutan trees.

Dabai, our very own local olive. It's definitely cheaper to buy it here than Sibu. Best of all, most of them are of good quality
