Jaya One Markets and Bazaar
The Jaya One Markets and Bazaar in Petaling Jaya is one of the most prominent and successful bazaars to date in Petaling Jaya and the reason for this is that the organisers hold this event only four times a year. This local bazaar is also known as Markets at Jaya One which is located at a commercial center, concept retail and entertainment hub in the Section 13 area of Petaling Jaya or PJ.
One of the highlights in the last few years was that Jaya One Markets and Bazaar introduced food trucks as part of their overall concept. This allowed local food trucks to park in the outdoor area where customers would move around to sample the various types of local and international food sold here. The outdoor section also saw a number of food vendors selling interesting choices of snacks, local and international ones as well.
Jaya One Markets and Bazaar Information
The last Jaya One Bazaar was held on 15-16 October 2016 and was following the theme of “Markets 20”. This concept is to indicate that they have successfully run twenty markets over the last five years since opening in 2011 and catered to over thousands of visitors.
The next Jaya One Markets and Bazaar is scheduled for 14-15 Jan 2017 as it was originally supposed to be in December 2016, so there will not be a year end bazaar at Jaya One. However, another bazaar organizer by the name of Weekend Markets holds weekly bazaars at the opposite area called Jaya One, The Square. This market however, is not as huge as Markets @ Jaya One, but still has around twenty stalls and opens till around 10.00 PM.
Markets @ Jaya One
What can you expect at Markets at Jaya One? Well, you will find mostly vendors selling accessories, clothes, bags, jewellery, shoes, handmade soaps, aromatherapy products, scrapbooking items (standard ones), journal planners and makers, modern collectible toys, kids items, pre-loved items, badges and a number of other general items. On the outer section, there are food trucks, food stalls and an area to sit, eat and relax before continuing to shop.
You should take note that there are in fact more clothes and jewellery accessories vendors compared to the niche ones, therefore if you are into fashion and accessories, you will have a good time browsing through the many stalls that sell these item. The place gets crowded just before lunch and right after lunch as many come here to have their lunch and explore the Jaya One Bazaar.
How to book a table at Jaya One Markets and Bazaar?
Generally, you need to go to the main information counter and get the contact of the organizer. You then need to email them with your products for them to approve what you are selling, as this is to control the quality of vendors there. Meaning, if you are planning to take stock from GM and try to bring it here to sell, they will not approve your request. High preference goes to those handcrafted items as these are unique and highly sought after.
