Many tasety foods, variety fresh fruits, vegetables. You can also enjoy short trip sailing along the Nakornchaisri river to see the traditional house along both side of the river. You can see the vegetable vendors sailing along the river selling local farm fresh fruit and more.

This market is not much different from any other thai market apart from the lack of westerners! During our time there I was the only westerners walking around that we could see, with that in mind very few vendors spoke much English.

A lot of stalls selling everything from cherries, to macadamia nuts to spices and clothes, everything you would see on any other market will be found here. Walking around is easy as the land is concrete so would also be suitable for wheelchairs or buggys.

Along the river is lined with thai restaurants selling thai food not catered for a westerners pallet, nor will you find an english menu so be prepared to use a translation app or point to the foods you would like to order (unless you can speak thai) the restaurant we choose had nice tasty food that came well presented and a good portion size too! Restaurants open 07:00 to 17:00 but I think some of the fruit/toys/clothes stalls stay open until 18:00. There are old farmers that also come around in their boats to sell their hard worked vegetables or fruits so try get a riverside seat so you can buy a few bits from them!

If you are in the area and want a non westernised Thai market then this is the place!!

This is definitely not a tourist-trap market!! We went on a Tuesday morning and we were the only Westerners we saw in the few hours we were there. It's fascinating and gave us a glimpse into a world you will hardly see anywhere else.

An odd side note--there was a dead body being pulled from the river while we were there. We weren't sure what to make of the entirely nonchalant way the local bystanders seemed to take this in. It kind of made us lose our appetite so we didn't end up eating at any of the vendors. I would assume this was an unusual event, although no one seemed particularly concerned about it. At any rate....it was just one more thing to make this an expedition unlike any other we've taken.

We went there as part of a cooking class on a weekday and it was a wonderful experience. All of the vendors were very friendly and wanted to share their products with us. Beautiful fresh fruits, veggies, spices, fish and more. Plenty of places for freshly cooked meals. Lots of color and activity. Loved it! Go early and on a weekday for a more intimate experience.

So much to see for both oversea tourist and locals such as variety of food, gifts, or simple collecting photograph for keepsakes. I only wish it was a little better organised as it was super busy.

I travelled to this local market with a local person through Uber on Sunday and love it. There were so many people (mostly local Thai) who stopped over here to buy local souvenirs. The alley was small and packed with people so be ready to be squeezed and sweat (during hot season). However, these will be worthwhile if you want to experience a local market atmosphere and get impressed from your souvenirs.

Went here on a Sunday and it was very crowded.
Also a good place to eat, it has 3 main eating area next to the river.
You can spend a few hours walking around and see what the local fresh market has to offer.
As it’s the biggest fresh market close to Bangkok it can get very crowded in the weekend

Delicious, fresh produce, helpful and friendly vendors. We visited on the way to Aoywaan Restaurant. This was a peaceful, well organised marketplace. We arrived by car and left by river.

Food, food, food ! The Wat is very nice and just behind there is an extensive food market - like Alice's restaurant, you can get anything you want. We walked a little bit and then took a very relaxing ride on the river. It was a nice time just to rest and look at local houses on the river, occasionally being passed by a few jet ski riders and boats. We stopped at another Wat along the way and bought coconut drinks - so refreshing. Many of the people/families brought their own lunches and had a sort of picnic on the boat. When we returned to the market, we bought terrific and delicious food to take home. We went on a Sunday and it only somewhat crowded - not enough to dampen the moment. It is a nice break from the larger tourist markets and probably more enjoyable.

Walking the market with the friendly vendors was a pleasure ... all types of food some recognisable some not. All the ones I tried were great .... feeding the huge fish in the river with loaves of bread was a highlight .... feeding the ducks will never be the same again.. well worth a couple of hours visit
