stalls, just a row of them, are lined up along the road not far from
Kinabalu National Park office, say 30 minutes drive.
Vegetable are farmed by KadazanDusun and sold wholesale daily at these stalls to as far as Brunei and Sarawak.
Buyers from as far as Brunei and Sarawak come by trucks to collect them at wholesale for distribution.
Here is a woman preparing her stall for opening business, on an early misty morning (I composed her at thirds but she suddenly bent forward, and I thought, the posture was nice, so I clicked). Kundasang is now a popular stop for visitors.
On a clear day, you will likely see Mount Kinabalu
behind the stall.
