  • We found this market by mistake. We asked our taxi driver to take us to a grocery store, and he dropped us here...what a fortunate mistake. This market is open Monday, Wednesday and Saturday from 2-7....  more »
  • The only corner market open on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday from noon to 10 pm. Consists of three parts, the first for tourist purchases handy for gifts, the second for local (fruit, vegetables, meat and seafood) and the third part to eat for nothing in small shops. We ate there once the afternoon and once at night.

  • Super market very original! What a nice walk and observe the stands quietly without getting land at every Stand! Go for it

  • OK. Best in the area. Haggle for a decent discount. Spent about 2-3 hours. Friendly people.
  • Most stores sell the same really bad quality tat. One woman tried to sell me a shirt saying it was linen when the tag on it actually said cotton. When I pointed this out she laughed and actually still had the cheek to start saying it was special cotton! Would have liked to see some actual north Thai like handmade goods.
  • Bit of a small market. Not much in terms of goods but the best all in one in the area. Many of the stall holders can be found back in town on the markets off days with the same goods. You can barter but only so far. Still it's friendly and fun.
  • A variety of cheap food and some shops selling nice cocktails. Also one can find different offers from perfumes to oils and clothes to earphones.
  • Unfortunately some Shops burnt down last week in a fire. But still a good atmosphere... Prices are ok for a market.
