A very crowded market!
Jul. 2020
Here you can see many locals handing out food, fruit, seafood and variety kinds of things. I stopped by and had a meal here. It was a quite special experience. I like the bbq chicken wing there. Try this out during your visit.

Repeated shops
Jan. 2020 • Friends
The market is next to the sea, with a lot of replicated shops. The market itself is a bit dirty, and very tight to walk inside. Very average attraction that you can skip.

A market of pearls
Jun. 2019
This market is famous for original fresh and water pearls. You can score both cheap and expensive beautiful pearls in this market.

Filipino Market also offers a wet and dry market that is a haven for bargain hunters.

Worth the return to dine at Welcome to Kinabalu Seafood Stall !!!!!
Jan. 2020
After walking through the Filipino Market , we sat down at Welcome to Kinabalu Seafood Stall for our dinner . Selecting our choice of various seafood and vegetables , the staff took it to the Chef to cook to our preferred receipes. We then proceed the order juices and drinks. Food service was fast, We enjoyed the juicy, succulent, tasty, tender, savory and delicious food.. Surely it is a great choice to have return again to this stall and it is highly recommened if you ever drop by the Filipino Market Food Stalls !!!!!

The Filipino market in KK
Jan. 2020 • Couples
This market is on the waterfront of KK and takes place every day. It is a great place, full of ambiance, where you can eat delicious fresh sea food at low prices and shop around for food, fish, vegetables and fruit and even clothes and souvenirs. A great place to visit and take pictures. Highly recommended.

Average Market
Jan. 2020 • Friends
This is both a food and dried fish market and then a standard market that is a bit further along.
There is a variety of foods here which are interesting and good to see local goods.
Beware of the rats running through the stalls though as I saw quite a number whilst I was there and the locals just thought that this was normal.

A food market really
Jan. 2020
We visited here and there was a lot of dried fish for sale, it was a little fishy the smell around this section should we say. There was a few places to eat but it was very smoky. We did buy fruit here which was very fresh and very nice flavour. Also the stall holders did give you a sample of the mangos which had really nice flavour. At the far end there were a few electrical goods and some other bits but we didnt go into this part to much.

Filipino market Kota Kinabalu
Nov. 2019 • Couples
The market is next to the waterfront (near Handicraft center). Recommended to watch sunset at the waterfront and proceed for nice fresh seafood. Some stalls sell fresh seafood and also cook them for you. The seafood sold here are really very fresh. The market does not smell fishy at all. There are also poultry, fresh fruits and dry food stalls. The small dried fish (ikan bilis) boneless is available, they are dried & sold at good price but dry scallop grade is not good. The market has stalls that sell durian when it is harvest season.

It’s located at waterfront of Kota Kinabalu.
Very big market with local handicrafts, fresh fruits, veggies, chicken and fish.

Lots and lots of varieties at best price. Don’t forget to bargain.

Refer pictures for view. A must visit place for tourists.

not as expected
Sep. 2019
the places was very dirty...not suitable for those who hoping for high level of hygiene.all the stalls almost selling the same souvenirs and quite expensive.Some sellers are very rude and friendly too.
other than that if u are looking for dried food such as anchovies,salted fishes and traditional snacks then this IS the place as u can find them so cheap...
