Jakarta’s most popular market is now offering customers a taste.
The market in Langkawi, capital of Aceh province, is being renamed the Arnhem Market, after the Dutch-Dutch explorer Robert Schoenberg.
It will be open to customers from Monday, July 23.
A selection of local wines will be available from 6am to 11pm daily.
The Arnhem market is one of the most popular in the country, and the name is fitting, as the wine is made from the fruits of the Arne River in Indonesia.
The fruit is harvested by a crew of eight to 12 men in a boat.
It is then fermented by the crew, dried, bottled and then sold as a finished product.
The price of a single bottle of wine at the Arnhere market is 2,000 rupiah ($48) per 1,000 millilitres.
“I like it because it’s an honest, natural and good way to buy a good wine,” said Arun Jannikul, a former sales director of the market.
“We are trying to encourage people to visit, and I think that this will help.”
The market will also be opening the door to local and international artists.
The artists’ works will be displayed in the market and sold at prices ranging from 3,000 to 12,000 kip ($90 to $140).
Arnhem Market owner Nalini Nakhapatip said the project would help the market attract new visitors and help boost the local economy.
“The market is very popular in this area,” she said.
“It is very important for people to get some local knowledge and know how to use their local market.”
