Shopping in Phnom Penh: Le Marche
Phnom Penh really has come a long way. When we first visited in 2004, I remember there was only Big A grocery along Monivong and Pencil Superstore. Those were the places to go for a little ‘Western style’ shopping. And we always took cyclo to go there. Those cyclo rides were one of the most memorable things I’ve done here.
These days there are malls, and countless small grocers sprouting all over Phnom Penh. While the malls/shops are yet to be at par with say Bangkok or even Saigon, its nice to see more shopping options around. It’s a good thing to find home stuff and cooking ingredients that were previously a rarity here.
One recent addition to the specialty grocer/shop scene here in Le Marche.
It hasn’t been open for long but its fast becoming a personal favorite. I really really love the quirky home items available there. There also have good inventory of ingredients for international cooking. Prices are also reasonable compared to similar grocers in the area.
I LOVE quirky MUGS!
Le Marche is located near Russian Market, along St. 456. Check out their Facebook page.
