Gianyar Night Market in Bali

Traditional Street Bazaar in Gianyar, Bali

Gianyar Night Market is one of the interesting highlights to check out and stop by whenever you travel to the heart of the Gianyar regency’s capital, about a 10-kilometre drive southeast of the main Ubud hub. This night market has grown into a top destination for hungry locals and curious international travellers from Ubud. Here they get to browse and sample a large variety of traditional snacks and cuisine from vendors who open up food stalls and tents along the town’s main strip of Jalan Ngurah Rai.

Ngurah Rai is a normal street by day, but its southern side becomes a bustling market and a local food haven at around 17:00 every day. Here you can satiate your crave for Bali’s favourite ‘babi guling’, along with succulent roast chicken, ‘bakso’ meatball soup, chicken and lamb satays and various traditional Balinese and Indonesian snacks and desserts. The Gianyar Night Market is hard to miss and can be slightly chaotic with the traffic and parked scooters.

In contrast to the hot and bustling daytime city street scenes, you’ll enjoy a brilliant mini cityscape with the vendors’ many fluorescent lamps flickering from sundown. Although busier during the weekends, you can visit the Gianyar Night Market on any day of the week. Besides dominant food stalls, the market naturally brings together a variety of wares, from fruits, vegetables, snacks, toys and jewellery, to clothes, knock-off DVDs, DIY household tools, and Balinese Hindu ritual items such as flowers, incense and readymade canang offerings. Haggling is common, if not a must.

The locals refer to the Gianyar Night Market as ‘Pasar Senggol Gianyar’ or ‘Pasar Malam Gianyar’. They love their babi guling as much as the snacks - known as ‘jaje pasar’ or ‘jaje Bali’ - including the favourite palm sugar-filled klepon or steamed glutinous balls, served with shredded coconuts or as takeaway in banana leaf wrappings. Another evening treat are the nasi jingo: mini portions of rice with variations of chicken shreds with usually very, very spicy sambal on top. Meals start from USD 2 (IDR 25,000) per portion, while snacks from as low as IDR 5,000.
