Teresang Market in Kapit, Sarawak

Teresang Market is one of the top sightseeing attractions in Kapit where the freshly plucked local fresh jungle produce, vegetables, wild-caught freshwater fish and freshly killed wild animal meat are easily found.

The market opens as early as 5.00 am while the sky still dark. It is located in town Centre and serves as a focal point for local folks to buy and sell the numerous local hinterland varieties products.

The local hinterland products including: handmade baskets, black olives (buah dabai), green longan, hairless rambutan (buah ma dunggul manok), wild boar meat and frog legs.

Kapit is the riverine town synonymous with Iban cultures and traditions as they are Sarawak's largest ethnic group which makes up more than three-quarters of the population. Thus iban farm produce and handicrafts are easily available here.

There are a number of different types of vegetables found here.
