The Candi Kuning Market, which locals refer to as Pasar Merta Sari Candi Kuning, or simply ‘Pasar Bedugul’, is one of two main markets in the Bedugul area. Candi Kuning is the biggest town in the mountainous Bedugul area and lies at 1200 meters right on the shores of the cool and often misty Danau Bratan Lake. On the main road just a bit south of the town, the Pasar Candi Kuning, the local vegetable and fruit market, is set up. Orchids and other jungle plants flourishing in this high altitude, as well as huge variety of artfully stacked fruit and vegetables draw buyers from all over Bali. Next to the exotic flowers and fruits, spices, such as nutmeg, pepper, paprika and turmeric add a wonderful array of colors.
Being a market targeted at travellers, you’ll find souvenirs in the form of generic and kitsch arts and crafts at stalls further inside. Candi Kuning Market provides fresh fruits, vegetables, spices, and such exotic flowers as delicate orchids and roses, creating an array of wonderful colors. Spices include nutmeg, pepper, paprika and turmeric. A wide variety of fresh fruit and vegetables can be found here, as well as jeruk bali (pomelo) and durian. Candi Kuning serves as a great stopover for refreshments in between your tours of Bali’s central region, or en route to the main destinations in North Bali, such as Lovina Beach, via the central highlands.
This central farmer’s is conveniently located halfway along the western side of the Baturiti-Singaraja route, and between two of Bedugul’s landmark attractions, namely the Beratan Lake with its iconic Ulun Danu Beratan lakeside temple, and the Eka Karya Botanic Gardens. You can take the local bus, a taxi or join on with a tour from Singaraja or Denpasar.
