Besides well-known as Paradise island, Bali also produce tropical fruits. The most popular tropical fruits from Bali are Mangosteen and Snake fruit. Every year Bali export it to China and other countries. But, the harvest time still depend on the season.

So if you’re tropical fruit lover and wondering where to buy with the local price, here’s our take on the tropical fruits shop (market) that Bali has to offer.

1. LOCAL MARKET IN NOT TOURISTIC VILLAGE

Every village in Bali has own market. This kind of market categorized as traditional market, not a modern market. It start operates in the early morning, then finish before mid day. It’s a wise if you go in early morning rather than late morning. You will have so much good quality fruit option and cheaper. For the exact location, you can ask to the local people or hotel staff in your stay.

*) Make sure you don’t visit in the touristic area.

2. LOCAL FRUIT SHOP IN NOT TOURISTIC PLACE

Somehow it has different price between fruit shop in the touristic place and not touristic place. You need to find where the local people buy the tropical fruit. It must be with the local price, not tourist price. Here some my recommendations:

1. KRISNA BUAH:

2. GRAHA BUAH:

3. FRUIT MARKET

There are some market who specialized selling fruits and vegetables only. But, i will short in four places only. Here they are:

1. UBUD MARKET IN THE EARLY MORNING:

Ubud market famous as art and souvenir market. But, in the early morning they sell vegetables and fruits. They just operates in the short time. It start on 5.30 AM and finish at 7.30 AM. After that, it turn into art and souvenirs market.

4. MOBILE FRUIT SHOP

What the hell is that?

Mobile fruit shop is a fruit shop who has no building. They use a car or pickup car or a truck that parked on the street and selling the fruits directly to people who pass on this street.

SELLING THE FRUITS ON THE PICKUP CAR

Mostly the seller from other province or island who brought the fruits from their hometown (village) and sell it in the big cities. So, they get profit from the difference price. Somehow their price still cheaper than other place because they don’t need to pay for rent a building.

LOCATION:

Along Jalan Teuku Umar Barat.

*) In the past we called it as Jalan Bypass Marlboro.

5. SIMPLE SHOP AT REMOTE VILLAGE

When you have a trip that pass remote villages, don’t hesitate to stop at simple shop who sell the tropical fruits. This kind of shop usually harvest the fruits from their own garden. So, the price should be cheaper than any other fruit shop. You can find this kind of shop in the not touristic area. It’s really worth it to stop and buy tropical fruits in this simple shop.

*) Catur village in Kintamani and Munduk village are some sample how cheap they sell the tropical fruits. The price is half price than other fruit shop.
