This Pasar Rame is one of the most crowded pasar in medan. U can buy a Manisan(candied fruit) and try their famous Mie Kangkung Belacan in here. If u want to buy clothes , u must bargain 20% - 40% from normal price. This pasar dont have air condition. And a lil bit smelly because in the morning they sell fish and meat.
