Generic Structure : • Identification
The market is called a floating market because the trade takes place on boats – in Indonesia, they are called klotok and jukung.
This market has existed for over 400 years. In the past, people from inland areas brought their agricultural produce or handicrafts to sell. They bartered with people from the coastal areas. Nowadays, people can buy things such as fruit, vegetables, traditional cakes and even clothes from this ‘pasar terapung’. Another unique feature of these markets is the time of trading. It begins around 5 a.m. and finishes at 9a.m.
