One of my favourite outings is to go the local fruit and veg markets here in Kota Kinabalu. Everything is fresh. Beats supermarket shopping any day. Fruit and veggies not wrapped in plastic like in the supermarkets here. Fresh pork and chicken daily. I love the fact that you can buy bags of peeled garlic, stir fry veggies, spices etc where all the preparation is done for you. Make sure you take a shopping list because with the fragrant aromas of spices, herbs, and every other smell wafting through the air as you wind your way through this maze of fresh food will have your shopping bags overflowing in no time.
