Artisans d’Angkor

Founded in the late 1990s to teach young rural Cambodians traditional craft skills and thus provide a means of supporting themselves, Artisans d’Angkor sells high-quality Khmer silks, stone and wood carvings, lacquer ware, and silver jewelry out of a charming two-story house in the historic city center. Shoppers headed to Siem Reap can also visit some of the artisans at work in their workshop there.

Central Market (Psar Thmei)

Severely damaged by a fire in 2003, the large Central Market still bears the iconic yellow Art Deco dome of its original 1935 structure. In addition to being one of Phnom Penh’s major architectural sites, the Central Market is a bustling commercial center. Dazzling jewelry stands occupy the center (under the dome) and the four radiating “arms” are filled with stalls selling everything from T-shirts and electronics to flowers and fresh produce.

Chocolate by The SHOP

Cambodia is not known for its chocolate, but these Belgians know what they are doing. Mixing Belgian chocolate with local ingredients like Kampot pepper and Mondolkiri honey, these confections make delicious souvenirs. The Shop, a small café next door is run by the same owners and serves simple fare like quiches and salads.

Russian Market (Psar Toul Tom Poung)

Known as the Russian Market because all of its goods used to come from Russia (one of the few countries that provided aid to Cambodia during the Vietnamese occupation), here you will find plenty of textiles and antiques (as well as the requisite bootleg DVDs and knock-off designer handbags.) The main appeal is the silk stalls, where colorful fabrics are sold by the yard and can be taken to a tailor to be made into a custom dress, skirt or jacket.
