Are you an arts, crafts, or F&B vendor looking to showcase your goodies at Iskandar Puteri? Whether you’re an artisanal coffee creator or a handmade leather goods maker, you’re in luck! We’ve gone ahead and narrowed down the four most exciting spaces and events around where you can share your creations. Check out our top picks below.
1) Anjung Neighbourhood Centre and Pasar Anjung
If a long-term gig is something you’re exploring, then the Anjung Neighbourhood Centre is where it’s at. The strip mall is home to 41 retail outlets including a mega-sized Mydin hypermarket. Alternatively, if you’re putting out your own local delights, Pasar Anjung – Iskandar Puteri’s self-professed ‘cleanest, neatest, and prettiest night market’ – is the perfect place to be. The weekly market happens every Friday from 4pm to 10pm and features a myriad of popular Malaysian mains, finger food faves, and sweet treats.
2) Medini Green Parks
Is your business all about living and loving green? Then check out your options at Medini Green Parks. The series of urban parks regularly holds markets that focus on quality local produce and all things sustainable. Recent markets in the area include the Harvest Market, Green U Market, and Merdeka Market. Apart from commercial activities, markets at Medini Green Parks also typically host a variety of educational talks, workshops, and other activities to keep things fresh – and the people coming back for more.
3) Puteri Harbour
If atmosphere is important to you, consider making Puteri Harbour a part of your set-up. A popular weekend spot, the sprawling development promises plenty of airy spaces your business could flourish in, having hosted the Iskandar Puteri Jazz Festival and Johor Arts & Heritage Festival in recent months. Bonus: an amazing waterfront view and steady sea breeze so you’ll never break a sweat.
4) Black Box and White Box @ MAP Iskandar Puteri
Calling all creative entrepreneurs. An expansion of MAPKL from Kuala Lumpur, MAP Iskandar Puteri is the heart of contemporary, arts, and cultural ideas in Johor. Both the Black Box and White Box are designed to accommodate large-scale activities from markets to exhibitions to gigs to community events, even weddings! It’s a space worth looking into if you’re thinking of tapping into a clientele that’s as colourful as you are.
