I love a good market and especially one like this that takes you behind the main shopping streets and bazaars to what has a more local feel.

This market is definitely a must visit place in Chiang Mai. It’s slightly east of city center; you’ll be greeted with fairly dense foot and car traffic when you arrive. What makes this place so unique is that it is geared more towards locals than tourists.This is a huge market that consists of many outdoors stalls and two multi-story buildings.... More

the first thing to say is that the market isn't where it says on trip advisor. It's actually near the night bazaar at that end of town. You can get a good selection of bracelets, clothes, bags etc. The food court at the bottom isn't the best, but you can get an omelette and rice for 50p.

Was much better than any night market. There is a hawang section that sells authentic hill tribe craft and clothes. Amazing selection and value. They don't negotiate down too much but it is outstanding quality. The food section with spices teas nuts etc is jaw dropping. I've never seen such a wide variety of dried fruits and chillis. Must visit... More

Quite different from the markets in Bangkok. This is a 'local' market and tourist attraction in one. It is a head-spin assault on all your senses. The colours, the smell, the noise, people touching you as they try to pass in narrow lanes, the taste of dried squid, fresh strawberries and pineapple with spices. It's a busy place. Take care...

I have been to this market on numerous occasions but nothing matches going on Chinese New Year. Many streets are closed off to allow more cooking booths, clothing and a multitude of other things to be sold. The sounds, smells, sites and beauty are amplified! This is always a great market to buy foods, flowers, and many other things. If... More

This is supposedly the oldest and most famous market in town. It caters mostly to locals. It is certainly big and crowded and it contains an impressive variety of stalls with fruit, vegetables, other foodstuffs, clothes, shoes, and household goods. There was some handicraft around the fringes, but the Anusan market offers a much better choice for souvenir shopping, in... More

This market is located only a short walk from Chiang Mai Night Bazaar and is located near the Ping River. Its open every day from 5am to 6pm and from 5pm to 11pm located in the Night Market Alley. This is a great local market and you see many Thais going about doing their shopping. Prices are much better than... More

We always collect goods from here Fabrics herbs and spices which we barter down to below Bangkok prices. Try the dried Bael to make really nice Bael juice at home no sugar required it's naturally sweet. Collect your chilies here both fresh and dried hot and super hot.

Everything that you could be looking for & if you look hard & dig deep inside the market, you will see some pretty interesting things. It has the classic market smells, some good, some not so good. This place is really interesting and well worth a visit. You are sure to find some original brand T shirts like Aaidas or... More
