Market Teresang Kapit

The bustling Teresang Market, situated right in the centre of the town and walking distance from the express boat wharf is one of the best markets for jungle produce, fruits, vegetables, exotic fresh-water fish and wild meat.

The market gets even more crowded from Fridays right through the weekends with traders and farmers coming in from the rural areas to sell their wares. Close by is Gelanggang Kenyalang, a popular food court. Folks in Kapit will tell you that a must-try is the fried roti canai (popular Malaysian flat bread cooked on a griddle).

Iban handicrafts are also available here. The market is open every day from 0600 – 1800
