Outdoor markets are quite common in Malaysia, especially in East Malaysia. There are mainly small shops where locals sell food or local products. The price is basically cheaper and fresher than the supermarket, and the selection is good.
The Gaya Street Open-air Market is located on the main street in Kota Kinabalu. Every Sunday, the whole street is an open-air market with many stalls.

The open-air market is located in Gaya Street, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. There are many restaurants and vendors in the market, and they are of good quality and low price.
