My teenage daughter and I visited Cotters Markets this morning and found it to be quite suitable as a market, with enough variety of stalls, but nothing exceptional. There seemed to be a number of food options from various parts of the world and we...More

I'd love to be enthusiastic about a local market. I just love them and there are fewer better ways to spend a leisurely Sunday morning. And I've come back to the Cotters Markets several times over the last couple of years since my last review...More

We really enjoyed our visit to Cotters Markets. There was a large array of fresh produce on offer and we were able to try freshly cut fruit, after which I bought a glass of tropical juice with mint which was delicious. I was able to...More

It was a welcome sight to see fresh produce available right at the end of our hotel (Grand Chancellor) on Sunday morning. We also picked up some treats from a bakery stall and twisty potatoes from another stall. Lots of handmade children's clothing, jewellery and...More

Found a great selection of international cuisine, some of the nicest where the dumplings from Juna's Momo and the spinach and cheese flat bread from Kurdo Turkish Gozleme.

Some local arts & crafts but the most appealing aspect of the market is the food. Especially the fresh and cheap exotic tropical fruits like rambutans and mangosteens currently in season. Some good options for brunch also from the street food vans like crepes, sausages,...More

Get in early for fresh produce and to beat the crowd. Plenty of dining options along the street but the same thing every weekend does make the markets lose its appeal. Good to support the local economy.

Still lots of stalls offering all sorts of merchandise, however, this market is no where near its heyday of years past. It is good to see the city getting visitors and the redevelopment looks really good. I guess if you like mangoes, bananas or tourist...More
