The klewer market is located side by side with Surakarta Hadiningrat Palace. Back then, this market had got the title of Market Slompretan. Slompretan derived from the word slompret aka trumpet that became a train marker departed in the days of Japan ago.
Once upon a time, in the days of Japanese occupation in Indonesia, Pasar Klewer area was a railway stop used as a place to sell indigenous traders. Slompretan Market is a place where small traders offer merchandise in the form of batik cloth. They placed the clothes on their shoulders so that they looked dangling or irregular when viewed from a distance.
From the merchandise of batik cloth, this market is known as Pasar Klewer. Merchants at Klewer Market were originally traders selling in Banjarsari and Supit Urang areas. The klewer market began to develop in 1942-1945 and growing until 1968. The government then built a permanent storey market building on June 9, 1970, to accommodate traders who inaugurated by President Soeharto.
In the present, the already beautiful Klewer market is still become the main layover of thousands traders and buyers every day. There are 2,211 merchants with kiosks and 765 traders who do not have kiosks mingling in this market. The ambiance in the old building and the new building, Klewer Market feels different.
Narrow, shabby, and irregular shades are visible in the old building. While the new building tidier, freely, and easy. Mobility up and down a storied market is made easier thanks to the presence of elevators and excavators. Now, this Solo icon also features a large parking area that previously often create congestion.
Galabo is an abbreviation of Gladag Langen Bogan, a culinary nightlife in the city of Solo. Before shifting, its location was to the east of the Gladag roundabout, precisely on Jalan Mayor Sunaryo in front of the Beteng Trade Center and the Solo Wholesale Center. Because it is in the road area, Galabo is closed during the day and only opens at night. After June 2018, Galabo is placed in a parking area south of Vastenburg Fortress or right in front of the Solo Wholesale Center (PGS). This new location is considered more representative because there is no need to close the road.
Opened every day from 5:00 p.m. to early morning, New Galabo still provides a variety of contemporary foods and legendary traditional dishes such as timlo, gudek ceker, satai and so on. Solo famous culinary icons like Rawon Penjara, Tengkleng Bu Edi Pasar Klewer, to Satai Kere Yu Rebi can be found here.
Different from the old Galabo, New Galabo has a brand-new concept and is comfortable to visit. Prices of food sold are also relatively affordable compared to the old Galabo. When in the old location, there were more than 50 merchants selling at Galabo. After going through study and selection, only 28 traders were considered eligible to occupy the culinary tourism area. In addition to the typical Solo food, the merchant’s commitment to maintaining cleanliness is also an assessment.
