Sunway Giza Bazaar Market
If you are in the Kota Damansara area, there is the Sunway Giza Bazaar Market which takes place every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the main open area of the mall. This weekend bazaar has been around since 2015 and organized by Weekend Market by Moove.
The Sunway Giza bazaar market has changed quite a bit as when they first started, there was a good mix of vendors selling all sorts of interesting items. Over time, a lot of vendors moved on to other places, leaving only the stalls selling clothes.
Sunway Giza Bazaar Market
In 2015 and 2016, you could find an assortment of vendors selling an assortment of products that would appeal to many people. Nowadays, you can find more fashion vendors that make the Sunway Giza bazaar look more like a clothes market.
I remember going there in early 2016 and spending some time walking around to see the many items being sold here. On my last visit in December 2017, I saw that out of 20 vendors, 15 of them were selling clothes and ladies accessories.
A lot of the old vendors have sourced other new places to sell their items, leaving only some of the old fashion vendors, and a lot of new fashion vendors coming in. Most o them selling similar daily wear that suit the Pratunam style fashion from Bangkok.
While you may be able to see a couple of new vendors there, they may be trying the promotional trial of one weekend offered by the organizer. The reality of the bazaar vendors is that they need to cover the rental cost, food and parking in order to actually see profits.
So, when a vendor does not meet that amount, they will then move on to other locations to try their luck. However, many may say it is the product, but some vendors strongly believe in their products, hoping to do well at any bazaar.
The Sunway Giza bazaar is a tricky place, because of the clientele there, they are more localized based on the community living around that area of Kota Damansara. This means, if you try to bring some fancy modern art concept to sell there, chances are it may not stop the consumers to look and see.
While most bazaar visitors are always looking for cheap bargains and deals, high priced items hardly do well. This concept has resulted in consumers having a mindset that bazaar products are usually cheap.
Vendors who have tried to sell premium items eventually change their game and start to sell cheap products, usually China or Thailand products which are relatively cheap and affordable to a certain market.
How Much is a booth at the Sunway Giza Bazaar Market?
The price is around RM320 for Saturday and Sunday, while for three days (Fri, Sat & Sun) it costs RM480.00. This is just the booth rental which is 6 x 8 feet in size. They have extra charges for power supply, stools or tables.
The Sunway Giza Bazaar Market price is based on the last information I got in late 2017. It is best to contact the organizer for the latest price as I am not the organizer.
The market time is from 12.00 noon to 10.00 pm, but sometimes vendors will extend to about midnight as there is a late crowd around here due to the bistros, bars and pubs.
