In the center of the market is a stage where local bands play live local pop music and dances, Khmer love songs as well as rap and Kpop. It is loud and exciting here.

At the back of the stage is a chain of food stalls that serve local foods and grills of all kinds from fermented tofu, sausages, and vegetable to chicken and seafood. It is nice to join with local families and groups sitting on mats right on the open ground and enjoy the relaxing experience in this typical local market.
