Central Market

The Annexe Central Market
The history of Central Market goes back to 1888 where the location it now stands was used as an open wet market. Later when the open market continued to expand, a permanent structure was built to house all vendors. Within the 200 years, Central Market or fondly called as CM by the local's has gone through transitions from simple wet market to a hub for all artisctic need of Malaysian Culture.
Under the Art Director Pang Kee Theik and his sidekick Lim Chung Wei, this two buddies always initiate something new for everyone. From rock gigs, to photo exhibitions, art exhibitions, dance and drama fests and more. The Annexe draws huge crowd at their annual Arts for Grab event where artists trades their inspiration to the community in a two day bazaar. A great place to hang out and de- stress yourself and there is always few restaurants to take some sip of Sirap bandung and explore the Artist Lane at the ground floor.
