Ubud Market

Written by , Posted in Travel

On our second full day in Ubud, Mike and I booked a cooking class with Paon Bali. This was the best thing we did during our entire stay in Bali because it was so much more than just a cooking class. Our first stop at 8am was the Ubud Market to see where all our ingredients came from and it was such an amazing place to see. The sights, the sounds, the colors, the faces…bright flowers, exotic fruits, eels in plastic bags, and meat cleavers swinging…I could’ve stayed here for hours taking pictures of everyone and everything. But, there was a meal to be made so we toured the market for about 45 minutes before continuing on our way but and I used every one of those minutes to capture as much as I possibly could!

Every morning and every evening the Balinese set out offerings everywhere. Our first glimpse of the market was at the market temple where the vendors set their offerings before they begin selling for the day…

The offerings are so bright and beautiful and seeing them set out twice a day, every single day gave us a very small yet meaningful glimpse into the Hindu beliefs. Check out this video on youtube to see how some of these offerings are actually made.

As we made our way through the rest of the market, from the flowers to the vegetables to the meat to the fruits and spices, every little corner had something to see…

The bottom line: if you’re in Ubud you MUST visit the market. The locals shop at the market first thing in the morning so I think that would probably be the most lively time to visit. Bring your camera and click away or just wander through the stalls and take it all in. Either way it will be experience not soon forgotten.
