It was established in 1960, the Atom Market continues to grow until now. Pasar Atom is typical as China Town in Surabaya, not only because of the most visitors are coming from Tionghoa ethnic, but also the location of the place is settled on China Town. Hence, we can see the acculturation between the local society and also from the Tionghoa culture. The acculturation shown from the visitors and the products. Moreover, we can find a lot of Javanese-Chinese Culinary in Pasar Atom, and there are some more from other Indonesia culture and tribes.
Furthermore, there is now Atom Mall that interconnected to Atom market. The building in Atom Mall is new and less like plaza or the common mall, having AC and tidier that Atom Market.
