The Old Market (also known as Psar Char) of Siem Reap is open from the early hours to sunset, and is made up of both a wet and dry section. The wet market offers daily supplies of vegetable, fish and meat to locals, although it is said that goods are pricier here than other local markets in the less touristy areas. It is quite a sight to see the busy market sellers sitting or squatting on their stall tables amongst the fruit and vegetables.
