As with many traditional (and popular) markets, there are hundreds of vendors from whom you can purchase just about anything. There are three stories to this market, so don’t just get stuck browsing on the first floor and the best time to visit is early morning when the produce and meat are at their freshest.
There is a huge range of items available in the market, with the stalls separated into categories. You will find kitchen and household goods, religious items, clothing, bags, shoes, fabric and jewellery. You will also find rice, spices, fruits and vegetables by the kilo. You can also purchase ready to eat foods including fried chicken and pork and sweet snacks.
You can get to the market easily by walking from Tha Phae Gate or by taking a red truck (songthaew) from anywhere in the old city for just 20 THB per person.
