Sindu Market in Bali

Traditional Fresh Market in Sanur

Sindu Market, often spelled 'Sindhu' and referred to locally as ‘Pasar Tradisional Desa Sanur’, is the main fresh market within the whole Sanur village area, located near the northern end of Sanur’s Jalan Danau Tamblingan road. Also referred to locally as ‘Pasar Sindu’ for short, the market is better known among regular visitors as a night market, where you can discover a bustling street food vendor scene that occupies most of its front parking space after sundown.

Before sunrise, however, the Sindu Market is already very much alive, particularly within the main area sheltered under its large warehouse-like structure. Although it carries ‘traditional’ in its name, the market is clean and modernized, with around 150 stands along white ceramic tiled lanes. Each of these are designated to different sellers, offering everything from fresh fruits, vegetables and spices, to flowers and young coconut leaves for daily Hindu Balinese offerings.

Surrounding this central row of stalls are individual kiosks, offering kitchen utensils and household tools, batiks and other traditional textiles, as well as several warungs (small food stalls) selling nasi campur mixed rice, refreshments and cold drinks. You can be sure to enjoy cheap, local prices here. Despite the modern layout of the Sindu Market, the traditional aspect remains in the hard bargaining, which you can practice here yourself.

These main fresh stalls usually become quiet after 08:00, while some of the surrounding kiosks stay open throughout the day. Then, in the afternoon, the parking space readies for transformation, as the market becomes what visitors refer to as the Sanur Night Market (aka Sindu Night Market) or ‘Pasar Malam Sindu’. By 18:00, local food stalls and carts roll in, cook and grill up local delights, ranging from lamb satays, bakso meatball soup to nasi goreng fried rice – all at budget prices. A serving of ten satay sticks with steamed rice starts from only IDR 20,000 (USD 1.50).
