Phsar Nath Market

In the centre of the town is the main Phsar (traditional market) and is geared to the locals, sporting the usual variety of fruits, vegetables, meat, clothes, sundries, food stalls

Phsar Nath Market, like most local markets, is a decent place for souvenir-hunting. The market is known for its gems and Battambang's famous fruit, but it also sells everything from fresh produce to electronics imported from China. Some stalls sell textiles, but most of these are imported.

Gem dealers, a couple of banks, photo shops and moneychangers line the streets that ring the phsar. Phsar Leu, just south of town, seems to be the place to buy the local specialties: oranges and pomelos from Pursat province. The oranges are said to be the best oranges in the country.
