Every Thursday morning, the Pasar Tani Mega Section 17, otherwise known as the Section 17 Mega Farmer’s Market, takes place along the road that also houses the Tuesday night market. Operating for more than 30 years, this farmer’s market has been steadily bringing in locals from around the area, offering fresh produce directly from the crop fields of local farmers.
Beginning as early as 5.30am, market vendors set up their stalls and begin to stack vegetables & fruits, meat & poultry, household items and more on their makeshift tables. As this farmer’s market eradicates exploitation by middlemen, prices of produce here are much lower compared to any of the other morning markets you can find in the Klang Valley.
Despite being a farmer’s market, you can also find a great variety of Malay street food such as putu piring, keropok lekor, kuih, rendang, nasi lemak, and much more. There are also a number of stalls selling durians directly from durian farms as well, making it one of the most affordable places to get fresh durians in the Klang Valley.
The market is extremely easy to navigate, as it sports two long rows of stalls along a single street. It’s a pretty comfortable experience, as the road is wide and kept relatively clean, thanks to FAMA’s initiative back in 2006 to clean up and upgrade farmer’s markets across the nation. They still manage and maintain the Section 17 Mega Farmer’s Market up till today.
We recommend getting here as early as 7am for the freshest experience. As there aren’t many parking spots around the area, late comers are often left with no other choice but to park in the surrounding housing areas, if you can find a spot. The residents in the area are pretty understanding about it, so long as you don’t block someone’s gate or car.
