some of the best organic markets in Bali
Daily local markets are deeply embedded in Balinese culture, men and women waking up as early as 3 am to sell goods and purchase what they need for their families for the week. With so many foreigners flocking to the island, farmers markets have become the perfect way to present authentic Balinese art and clothing, allowing all to experience the culture and food of the island, and find unique goods made locally.
Because foreigners are so drawn to the island, Bali farmers markets have evolved from traditional markets to more Western markets targeting the expat community, allowing us to indulge in the things we may miss most from wherever we came from. Luckily, there are quite a few options for farmers markets in Bali! We have put together a comprehensive list of markets ranging from traditional and authentic to Western chic!
