This new year, homegrown cultural-culinary concept SPRMRKT announces the return of its annual cultural showcase with SPRMRKT Cambodia – a three-month cultural and culinary “conscious” extravaganza that brings the best of Cambodian cuisine, produce and art to our sunny shores.
Taking place from 7 January to 31 March 2019 across the brand’s STPI and Cluny Court locations, SPRMRKT Cambodia (#SPRMRKTCambodia) offers a diverse array of authentic Khmer experiences, bound to evoke new ways of imagining the Kingdom of Wonders in all its storied glory.
Here’s what to expect in a snapshot:
