Kumbasari Art Market in Bali

Bali’s Central Art Market in Denpasar

The Kumbasari Art Market is one of Denpasar’s main icons and one of the city’s main sources of arts and handicrafts. The market is located right across the Badung River from Badung Market and sells items that mostly come from the island’s various art-producing communities, like Ubud and the central Bali highlands, while also featuring galleries of onsite painters and craftsmen.

Locally referred to as Pasar Kumbasari, the Kumbasari Art Market in central Denpasar sells mostly the same kind of goods you’ll find at any traditional market in Bali. However, the diverse selection of items available will easily appeal to avid shoppers, especially with its bargain and wholesale prices.

How to get the most out of Kumbasari Art Market

Like the Badung Market, Kumbasari is one of the island’s oldest, open since the late ‘70s. Its 4 levels are home to over 200 kiosks and over 1,000 stalls. Haggling is accepted throughout, even though most vendors have labelled many of their items with fixed price tags. Larger shop owners can speak English and can arrange deals for shipment and packaging of larger items.

Kumbasari takes on a traditional morning market scene – somewhat chaotic, but catering to the daily needs of locals for fresh produce and groceries. By noon, as the morning frenzy subsides, most of the art stalls will have already opened, taking over the scene. From kitsch barong keychains for less than a dollar to towering silver sculptures costing hundreds of dollars, the choices are seemingly endless. By night, some parts of the market open up with food stalls, making it a good spot for a budget-friendly dinner.

What to buy at Kumbasari Art Market

The 2nd level features a large hall where you can find a huge variety of souvenir items and art pieces, including silverware, mini sculptures, Balinese batiks, paintings and more. The locals also source their daily household necessities and religious items from several shops here, including silk parasols, temple attire, incense, flower offerings and silver holy water vessels, some of which also make exotic décor items to spruce up your living room back home.
