Authentic. Smelly. Local food market. Little of internet to foreigners. Essential daily life in Cambodia. Seafood and frogs, fruit and meat. No touting or haggling. No souvenirs.

If you ever came across Phsar Kandal1 and wonder where to find the best place to exchange money and deal with bus or van ticket or even arrange a city tour. I suggest my Money Exchange and travel service @LS Money Exchange Travel Agency.

What is being sold are primarily for the locals. It is a bit wild and crazy with fish in one alley and then a lot of pork/meat in another...with all kinds of stuff for sale in between. There are tent stalls for cutting your hair. There are also a lot of bars and restaurants that seem to be frequented by foreigners located in the periphery. These tend to be quite a bit more expensive than many other places. I saw one European/North American guy passed out on the street in front of a bar...no one paying any attention. That says it all.

A very local market full of residents buying their daily food. Not really a tourist attraction IMO. Very easy to get lost in, so be warned.

Went at 5.30pm, when it wasn't too hot and less crowded. It certainly has a strong local identity, wide varieties of business from fresh produce, food stalls, shoes, to hair salons and manicure/pedicure shops! It is almost like a labyrinth, quite fun to explore until I got to the fishy stalls, the stench can be unbearable for some. The fruit stalls did have plenty of amazing fruit we just didn't have room in our stomachs.
The market would be reflective of 'wet markets' you still find in many SE Asia countries, but I must admit this is my first time seeing hair salons in a market lol! Great place for photography indeed, rich colours and strong characters, friendly locals (shame we didn't understand a word).

Excellent to wander around looking at all the various food and vegetable stalls. Best ribs ever at the back and lots to see. We did it with a. Guide which helped as would not have been brave enough to try somethings ourselves !

Really fun walk through the market. Never knew exactly where we were and every corner had something interesting. Has more local feel than the central market or Russian market.

This place had it all, beautiful khmers and chams, products, lightings, friendly people.

If you are an avid photographer this is the essence of Kandal the province where Phnom Penh sits.

For those used to this part of the world, the market is very average. For those who are not, it will be quite the experience, I'm sure.

It's a food market with fresh veggies, meats, spices, etc. Best part about it are the noodle stalls along the west-side. Tasty guay tiaw for under a dollar! Can't beat that for a quick, cheap meal.

Kandal Market (Phsar Kandal) is a block from the riverside and i happened to be staying at a guest house in the same street. This is not a tourist market but a local market and you will see very few tourists here. It was particularly busy in the morning and late afternoon with locals purchasing veg and meats for their meal. Phsar Kandal can be translated to market in the middle as it was in the center of the city. The market sells fresh fruit an vegetables, meat and seafood as well as clothes, bags, jewelry and many other goods. The alleys between the stalls are narrow and crowded with locals, but well worth exploring.
