About
One of Bangkok’s best-kept secrets is Khlong Toey, a chaotic, sprawling food market not far from the city’s centre. It’s a travel photographer’s dream, packed with shouting market vendors offering live produce, fresh fruit and vegetables and cooked local dishes. Eye-opening and enthralling, it’s a great insight into how locals live – and to where your moo manow really comes from.

Local wet market
Oct 2020 • Friends
This is a local wet market and not for the faint hearted. It is packed and stinky in some sections of the market.

Even the market is huge, most of the vendors are selling the same things. I expected a larger variety of vegetables and fruits but it is not the case.

Nevertheless, you pay low prices and receive large quantity of produce as compared to supermarkets.

Local food market
Jul 2020 • Couples
Incredible market primarily for food. Showed cased in a number of foodie programs such as Andrew Zimmer and late Andrew Bourdain. Open 24/7. Vegetables, fruit, fish, meat and kitchen utensils. As noted by plenty of reviewers don’t wear sandals or flip flops - this is a wet market.

Authentic market experience
Jan 2020
This is a real non tourist Thai market in Central Bangkok. Went here as part of a Thai cooking class "Cooking with Poo" so had a guided and very informative tour of the market. It is crowded and filled with fruits, vegetables, food stalls, meat and live animals. It is not for the faint of heart, saw two rats and a cock roach. Do not wear sandals. The floor is wet and sometimes bloody

A fun and adventurous local market experience
Feb 2020
This is a colorful local marketplace chock full of fresh produce, fruits and vegetables, along with very fresh fish, meat and spices. An awesome experience but don’t wear sandals because some areas can be wet and bloody. Great photo opportunities. Don’t miss it.

Fresh Fruits

To experience the real Thai market packed with fresh fruits and vegetables, head over to the Khlong Toei market. I absolutely savored the fresh strawberries and Guava that I picked at a very reasonable rates.

Best market in Bangkok
Jan 2020 • Solo
Hands down this place is awesome. I go weekly and can fill a large backpack with less than 1000 baht of the freshest meat, fruit, and vegetables in the city. I rarely see foreigners here. Tourists usually go to the overpriced KorTor market.

A must if you’re into authentic thai markets
Jan 2020 • Friends
Finally an authentic local market and no tourist scam. Leave out the fresh meat section if you’re too sensitive. The fruits and vegetables sections are amazing. If you want to shop like a local, go there. Prices are amazing and everything is super fresh and fruits are ripe.

The Real Market
Dec 2019 • Couples
An expansive Thai street market covering some 3 blocks from the Rama III / Rama IV intersection. Everything is here although more geared toward food and produce then clothes and bags of the night markets.

A word to the wise, this is not a tourist focused area, it is exactly what you would expect from a street market. I would whilst issuing warnings, those not fond of meat may want to skip this as a large section of the market is raw meat and fish not to mention living meat awaiting transactions. The smell is quite strong and not for the faint hearted.

That said, a real eye opener and worth an hour or so to explore. Do try the Dorian here, some of the best I have found.

Happy travels.

Flashback yet value for money
Sep 2019
Read about this place and decided that needed a trip there. This is a huge market place and you can find almost any kind of food or fruits there. Its huge like Chatuchak but except that the products are different - fresh produce like seafood, poultry, fruits, spices, meat, provisions....anything that should be at the wet market. It's a flashback like Singapore in the 60s and 70s. Oh yes, you can even have an authentic local meal there. Best of all, it's definitely safe to freely walk around in this land of smiles.
