Ramadan Bazaar in Penang
The most exciting month of the year, the holy month of Ramadan, brings the Ramadan bazaars (Pasar Ramadhan), which offer diverse gastronomic experiences that can only be had once a year.
Malaysians can find an array of local food at these month-long food bazaars. Here, they will shop for delicious items and hunt for the best bargains.
The holy month of Ramadan may not seem like the most obvious time to enjoy traditional Malay food, but every evening, once the daylight hours of abstinence and spiritual reflection are over, Penang’s Muslims gather at Ramadan bazaars across the island to break their fasts and spend quality time with family and friends.
After the month-long fast, they will visit relatives and friends to celebrate Hari Raya.
