Markets

Local produce markets can be found all over the highlands and these are one of the spots tourists flock to get everything under one root. There are many of these markets sprouting over the past few years and almost all are located along the main road so you can't miss them. The most popular tourist market is at Kea Farm but you can also find some smaller ones almost everywhere you look.

TANAH RATA NIGHT MARKET

Located at the car park near below The Convent, the Tanah Rata Night Marker is much smaller that the one in Brinchang, however it has everything you will need. From local produce to street food, you can take a stroll here while enjoying the cool evening weather. s
