I had the opportunity to visit the weekly tamu at Dataran Tomborungus in Kudat Town. Tamu is a congregation of small time business enterpreneur just like the pasar malam or night market in other places. However tamu is mainly for local farmers to sell their product and it is a form of direct sales- fresh from the farm.
This concept is now replicated by FAMA who organised the Pasar Tani.
The pictures below was taken during the tamu.
Traditional medicine also make its presence at the tamu.Flying without wings? Oh....its chicken wings roasted over charcoal fire. Chicken wing is becoming a popular delicacy in Sabah and Sarawak.
Fresh from the farm: It is not only fresh but cheap too.
Coconut has been the symbol of Kudat since it was the main product before being taken over by oil palm.Coconut juice from young fruits is a refreshing drink on a hot day and the soft flesh is so soothing to eat.
