What’s not to like? Psar Chas is the center of tourist activity in Siem Reap. The side closest to sivatha st is geared towards locals filled with various household goods, pots, pans, plastic bins and other tools and hardware. The side closer to the river is filled with a bunch of tourist crap like t-shirts, key chains, bracelets and various trinkets you buy so you can say, “hey I went to Cambodia!” Fun! The middle of the market takes the cake. Come early and you’ll see a vast wet market selling all types of produce, from gourds, seeds, goya, lai chee and other unidentifiable fruits and vegatables. Meat shops line another side with chickens with their street standing erect and buckets of shellfish and fish on ice or being cleaned. You’ll see plenty of locals shopping for ingredients for dinner mixing with tourists bargaining for souvenirs making a strange dichotomy. Grab breakfast for about buck at one of the restaurants in the market.

You can find some fantastic deals at the Old Market in Siem Reap. My sister wanted to collect a bunch of buddha artwork and we got some great deals. Remember not to accept the first price offered, you can go back and forth for quite some time and end up with a great deal. If you don't like to bargain, you'd still feel like you were getting a deal compared to many other countries.
Though shopping was enjoyable, the heat was unbearable - the air circulation inside the market was horrible and I was very uncomfortable shopping.
The Old Market is definitely worth checking out!

This is the main tourist market, just before Pub Street. Everything from t-shirts, purses, paintings and all other souvenir items. Worth wandering around for an hour, and fun to check it out in the morning because all the fresh fruit and veg are ready for sale. Always busy, but if you want to do any trinket shopping, it's best to scout out here, then make your purchases at the night market ( the prices are better there). Open till about 7 or 8pm.
