Traveljunkieindonesia.com – This morning I woke up, looked out my window and OMG it was such a beautiful day!
I love to travel like a local and share snapshots from traditional market.
We were here, Pasar Gawok! Fita Fito brought Anisa Na, Azis Abdullah, Ringga Prayudha, and Travel Junkie Indonesia, to Pasar (market) Gawok.
The sense of traditional market holds strong in Pasar Gawok.
It’s a great traditional market for just pointing, shooting, buying, selling and learning.
Located at Gatak, Sukoharjo. Pasar Gawok is the real wonder of Javanese traditional market. It takes about 20 minutes to travel from Solo to Pasar Gawok.
If you wonder to see the traditional market crowd you should come at Pon and Legi days (Javanese Calender).
In this market, I found many blacksmith stands lined up and how the traditional blacksmith create weapon, hoe, sickle, etc. And, next area I found people selling livestock like goat, chicken, duck, swan, bird, etc.
The most interesting area is the rooster fighting crowd. So many adult males contesting their rooster, people circled, and crowded contesting their rooster.
And, I have heard a lot of good reviews and things about traditional food like gethuk, jadah, jenang, sate kambing, gulai kambing, etc. So, we were very curious to try it out. It is so SO good. It’s been AMAZING for us. Perfectooo!
There were a lot of other dishes that I wanted to try… but we ran out of time.
Pasar Gawok is very interesting that almost all the “recommended”, where travel junkies could see how local people interact in the market.
We had a fantastic time and we were indeed glowing.
So yes, a lovely and simple day. It was indeed priceless.
Happy Sustainable Travels!
