Night Market in Cameron Highlands

The night market /pasar malam in Cameron Highlands is one of the highlights for the trip. It will not complete without visiting the local market. The waze brought us to the night market in front of Golden Hill apartment. There are bit of traffic jam when near to the site, fortunately with the help of RELA, the traffic is under control. Two charged parking slots available there or you could choose to park by the roadside.

The front part of the night market selling clothes, toys and etc. We need to walk further to the back for food. They separated the food stalls and non-food stalls.

I never see yacon and surprised see the farmers selling that in the market. Anyone of you ever cooked it?

"The yacón (Smallanthus sonchifolius) is a species of perennial daisy traditionally grown in the northern and central Andes from Colombia to northern Argentina for its crisp, sweet-tasting, tuberous roots. Yacón has some slightly sweet, resinous, and floral undertones to its flavour, probably due to the presence of inulin." source from wikipedia.

Some stalls even selling small plants like cactus which grown in small pots.

I was so excited to see the big and juicy-looking strawberries in the market. They are selling at affordable rate compared to hypermarket in KL.

It is advised to buy the strawberries on the day you leave CH as it is rotten fast if you leave it at room temperature for long time. Keep it cool in the fridge or open the boxes as to cool it down if you wanna leave it in room temperature. Our strawberries bought from CH almost rotten as we did not store in fridge and open the boxes which we kept in our room and car while driving back to KL.

Milky corn (Jagung Susu)

Pearl Corn (Jagung Mutiara)

Both are Cameron's corns but different breeds. Don't miss out to try both. The pearl one is more expensive. But one has to be careful if they are really CH's corn or Ipoh's corn. Next, I will recommend a stall which sold purely CH's corn. That's stall is recommended by the local tour guide who brought us to Mossy Forest. He also purchase from that stall and he is the local people in CH. That's my sharing on CH night market. Stay tune for more of CH!
