Lots of different foods to try from fresh lobsters to stuff on a stick. Prices to suit any budget. Try a little of everything! We sat at a table by a very entertaining solo guitar player who sang American classic rock. Don't forget to try coconut icecream and if you're bold enough try the insects. They're really good! Bamboo worms and grasshoppers were my favorite.

We visited Rayong province in Thailand and found this market nearby sea beach early in the morning about 7-9 am. We found the fresh seafood with reasonable price and the local shop provided a frozen container to pack seafood.

A few years ago a huge market was built in Ban Phe totally disproportionate to the size of this relatively small seaside village in Rayong Province.

On a visit today, the reason for its size suddenly dawned on me.

Ban Phe is a popular tourist destination for Thais and it is also famous for its dried squid, prawns and other dried seafood.

Today there were many large tourist buses parked at the market as Thai tourists bought their stocks of dried seafood delicacies to take home for themselves and as gifts for their friends.

And from the huge quantities that some of them were carting out of the market, I wouldn't be surprised if they are setting up shop back in their own towns and villages to retails these prized goodies..

The most people in the market are Thais. Not a lot of farangs. We walked also the streets in this nice old smal city and were very happy to see old wood houses typically Thai. For Lunch you will find a lot of good seafood Restaurants...

If you like Rayong T-shirts and chips made by a local fruit it could be worth a visit. But it can not compare to other markets. The shopping is not what to expect from a Thai market. No cheep ripoff on brand names. No electronics etc.

Great stop to buy local produce from locals. You can find anything from durian chips to dried shrimps and squids with great price to bargain.

This week I am playing host and tour guide to friends from Australia, so today we set off to visit the old fishing village of Ban Phe, about 20 km east of Rayong.

Among other things we visited the Ban Phe Market to give my friends a taste of how Thais do their shopping.

Ban Phe Market is vast - the size of at least two football fields, which for such a relatively small town is unusual.

It has clothing and accessory stalls, suitcase and bag stalls, and many stalls selling the local delicacies of dried squid and shrimp. Few Thai tourists to Ban Phe return home without at least a few packets of these delicacies.

In the middle of the market is a food court selling cafeteria style Thai food and very reasonable prices.

I cycled along the coast to visit the market. It's a stunning ride, with mile after mile of empty beaches. I stopped for a swim in crystal clear water before heading to the food market. There is a wide range of dishes to choose from. It's cheap when compared to restaurants, and in my opinion a lot tastier.
