One of the most famous markets among tourists in Cameron Highlands is Kea Farm. It is located about 2 km north of Brinchang town, on the way to Tringkap town.
In fact, Kea Farm is just right beside Cameron Highlands Equatorial Hotel. On weekend, the main road nearby Kea Farm is pretty crowded with long vehicles queues serving as the popular stretch heading to Rose Centre and Sg Palas Tea Plantation or Mossy Forest.
Most outstation folks will stop by to get their favorite vegetables, fruits or even flowers stock before heading home. Everybody that is coming out from Kea Farm market will definitely hold at least a packet of stocks, ranging from vegetables, fruits, flowers, plants or even souvenirs.
These days, Kea Farm is more commercialized, supported by an indoor concrete single-storey complex built behind the stretch of the Tudor-style shops along an inner road. If you are tired of walking, there are cozy cafes to sit down and rest while enjoying some snacks and tea/drinks.
Vegetables are usually sold in bundles, could be consisted of cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage and a packet of three capsicums for RM10. Corns, sweet potato, cherry tomato, zucchini, asparagus, strawberry and even persimmon are available in most stalls. Plenty of choices here, so bargain wisely!
Flowers are also sold in bulk and comes in plenty of choices and colors. Rose, gerbera (daisy), carnation, water lily and calla lily are commonly found. If freshness is not your priority, you can get plenty of them here. Nevertheless, the flowers are not as cheap as sold previously or what most folks claimed. In my opinion, we are just paying for what they are worth at that point of time. If you are going to use for floral arrangement, these flowers are definitely not be the grade that you are looking for. Price wise, they are not consistent, perhaps it is good to check out at a few stalls before buying.
