Container markets multiply in the capital

The container market is undoubtedly proving to be a popular venue in Phnom Penh, with the latest container market set to spring up in the Boeung Kak area.

According to Bun Seng, the 27-year-old owner of the Art’s Container Market project which is located within the up-and-coming Phnom Penh City Center complex, the inspiration for the market concept came from a desire to promote both international and local brands to customers in a cost effective setting.

Unlike other container markets in Cambodia that sell a range of apparel, shoes and accessories, Seng’s business will stick to selling food and drink. In addition, Seng said the market would offer original music and entertainment to customers.

Seng expects 80 stores to open at his container market which spans nearly 3,000 square metres.

“Customers will be very excited about the interior design of each shop in our market place as it is unique and different,” he added. “The location is also prime so customers can come and visit from anywhere in Phnom Penh.”

Pen Vatanak has established a Hong Kong franchise within the Art’s Container Market. The Bear Bread vendor said his stand specialises in making burgers and expects it to be a hit with the young crowd.

“We will sell a new type of food that young people especially will enjoy as it has a different taste due to the ingredients being purchased from abroad,” he said.

“I hope that many customers will come to the Art’s Container Market.”

The emergence of another container market in Cambodia follows the recent success of Jet’s Group’s night container market on National Assembly Street. Jet’s night container market, which opened in March, features several long corridors of shops and restaurants, many with seating on top of the containers, and a plaza in front of one of several music stages.

The Art’s Container Market will officially open on August 5 and will operate from 4pm to 2am every day.
