This place has a huge selection of batik for sure. Prices can be low but you must bargain (preferably while speaking Indonesian). The quality varies so you have to check carefully. Note that for large-sized Westerners, it might be problematic getting super large sizes. Even their so-called XL sizes are small by Western standards. Some of the sellers can also be persistent.

to get to Beringharjo you have to walk from tugu station down towards kraton Place. about a kilo meter on the left side of the road you will see the market. By the way It is a dry market. At the entrance to the market you will see alot of stalls selling fruits and even gudeg and drinks. on the ground floor you find alot of stalls selling clothings mostly it is batik. You need time and patience to walk the small coridors to window shop. you name it they almost have it. shirts, blouse, bags hats. You can get batik short pants for 1.50usd. Tee shirts you can get a cotton tee shirt for 3.5usd. On the ist floor you also find clothings but on the back you have a spice market. you can buy in grams. ginger, for liver even for enhancing the libido....whether it works i am not too sure. On the 3rd floor you have antique shops and you can find a range of old items. but make sure you bargin to get a good price. Prices are reasonablely cheap if you know how to haggle.the place has a/c but it can get hot when it is crowded. It opens at 9am and closes at 6pm. In the weekends it is really crowded. It is best to go on weekdays where the crowd is less and you can get a good bargain.

I was taken here by a friend who knew his way around Yogya. He took me to this market to find batik stall called Soenardi. Let me make it clear that there are hundreds of batik stalls when you enter this market, but at Soenardi, the price cannot be beaten and they are quite reasonable. I ended up buying even though i did not plan on getting anything. I spent almost 30 minutes choosing only 2 batik from batik tulis to stamping batik because they have numerous beautiful designs. Remember your budget because you can spend your money here quick. after looking at batik, we saw old ladies carrying heavy loads walking around. Reminding how they work hard for their money. Outside of market we bought local snacks and i wish i could stay there a bit longer to explore. I absolutely love Pasar Beringharjo.
