Great market to amble around on Sunday late afternoon, plenty of food vendors and nice craft stalls for nice souvenirs, unlike the usual ones with fake goods and cheap tat.
Live music and lovely friendly atmosphere, it gets really busy so get there a little earlier to avoid peak times.

12-5-21, weather was nice, visited and probably the best night market in Phuket with live music. Great food and we had a great time, but some are overpriced for a street. We paid 300 baht for 8 baby back ribs. Yes it’s good but those are premium, nice restaurant with nice views prices. I wouldn’t get meat from those vendors at those prices. Also watch some other meats as they can be undercooked, like the chicken.

We had the best time at the Sunday Street Market. It was so nice seeing the community come together and enjoying the night. There were lots of vendors, live performances and arts and crafts. We enjoyed it all and highly recommend coming.

I visited on Sun 25 Jul 21 at 1630. No street market taking place. I can only assume that covid has meant that it is suspended at the moment.

The place does get a little busier in the evening - more bustle, but it isn't the full street market and it isn't closed off to road traffic.

There are a lot of stores that are closed. Quite sad.

Only open on Sunday.
Lots of local street food, interesting cafe and shopping.
Worth coming as everything is on local price (right now).

If there is one market you have to go to in Phuket, this is it! Thalang road is closed to vehicles and becomes a walking street. There is so much more than just the usual food and clothing stalls. You can find unique pottery pieces, unusual jewellery and many other treasures here that are not found elsewhere. There is live music and such a great vibe here. Be sure to go early when it opens at 4pm if you’re looking for a a parking spot nearby.

Sunday Walking Street brings out a lot of tourists and locals alike. It is VERY crowded so make sure to keep your belongs close at hand. Baht is the currency of choice at all vendors and stores. Be sure to keep a lots of small denominations and coins handy. Things move in a big wave down the street so there isn't time for stopping a gazing or backtracking in to the mass of people. IF you see something you like get it then and there. There are tons of tasty morsels to try. Be adventurous. Prices are pretty fair on goods. You may be able to bargain a tad with the street vendors. Most shops are set prices but it never hurts to ask, especially if you are buying several items.

I was on Thalang St in Old Phuket town. This is the street the Sunday walking markets are at. One of the store owners on this street informed me there are no markets on anymore since last weekend, due to Covid19. Not sure if the night markets are on either. Check any forums on TripAdvisor or on Google for more information.

Friday 14th February we were on an Explore Phuket Tour, which included sightseeing in Old Phuket.

One of the attractions was the Sunday Walking Street Market. Although we did not visit here on a Sunday, there was sufficient open and going on to give us a flavour of the place.

We strolled along past vibrantly painted buildings, ornate fronted shops & restaurants. There was some amazing wall art adding to the atmosphere.

Shops along the street were displaying fabrics of every colour. Tourist shops were side by side with local hardware and general stores.

We visited a number of arcades filled with stalls with their merchandise on display.

There were a plethora of bars, cafes and restaurants along the way.
