After looking online we decided to try here, after a walk that seemed to go on forever from the MRT Rama 1X station where you go along a long path past a few bars with music, you eventually reach the market, unfortunately it does not meet expectations for shopping. There are many food places but many of the shops are closed and not reopened since COVID. Our conclusion is there are better places in Bangkok which does not need a hike to get to it.

I viewed some reviews and did some research on this place before arriving on my holiday to Thailand.
I have to say I was quite disappointed and from what I had read it didn’t match what I saw.
The market I saw seemed to have been scaled down somewhat, maybe due to covid I don’t know.
The food stalls seemed to be catering to more of the locals with lots of seafood options. Most of the signs on the stalls didn’t have English translations of the menu options in comparison to other markets.
There is however a good hall right next to the market which has lots to choose from, which is clean and has plenty of seating and everything is cooked to order.

Go after 8, walk through the shopping centre, the market is outside.

Lots of choice here, and there are some handmande goods and retro clothing, a much better selection tha all of the other Bangkok markets.

Great for food and drinks too, some great choices.

Hi guys do you happen to know if these train markets are open on weekdays especially on mon, tues and wed? Im quite hesitant of going here just because Id only stay in Bangkok for mon-wed. If they are closed, would you suggest a night market that caters to more vintage stuff other than this train market?

The market has moved to a new location, at Srinakarin (Srinagarindra) Soi 51. Thais know this area for the large malls Seacon Square / Tesco Lotus Srinakarin / Paradise. It is in a different part of Bangkok, roughly between downtown and Suvarnabhum airport.
Visitors can use the BTS Skytrain / Sukhumvit Line. Get off at Udom Suk Station, around the corner of Sukhumvit Soi 103. There you take a Taxi (about 5 Kilometers) or Song Teaw (red Taxi Pick up truck) to Seacon Square. The Song Teaw stops at the opposite side but you can take the footbrigde nearby and get to Soi 51 easily. Then walk along Soi 51 about 200 meters to the main entry. There is a lot of traffic on the main road so i would choose Sunday for a more convenient travel. There are some permanent antique shops and pet shops / dog spa's at the main road Soi 51, the flea market area is about 150 meters inside next to Golf course, behind the food and cloth area that is separated. The warehouses are under construction but the street sellers already found their way to the new location every weekend. Probably late 2013 everthing will be completed and should last for the next 15 years. The market is basically the same just at a different location with some more modern facilities, so it should be at least as good as the old one.

This place is where you'll find great vintage stuff at reasonable prices. Saw a small display wooden cabinet, price before bargain was THB2000. Other great finds include vintage vinyl player, furniture even cars!

There's also a big food market where local and foreign delights can be found. We tried the thai squid salad, oyster omelette, boat noodle and milk shake, Yumz!

Tips on how to get there:
We consulted several blogs on how to get there. Basically there are 2 ways. First route is to take a taxi directly from wherever you are. It is in the direction of the international airport. Second route is to take BTS to On Nut station and take a cab. All the taxi drivers have no idea where this train night market is, even though we showed them the map. So to save any miscommunication, just tell them "Seacon Square". The journey from On Nut station to Seacon Square is approx 30 min and cost about THB100. Seacon Square is a huge shopping mall, we alighted opp the mall and walked across. When you are there, don't go into mall (as you may get lost), head straight to the main road and walk towards your left (assuming you are facing the road). Lots of people will be walking in that direction and you will see a wooden ship icon. You have reached your destination.

Second Tip:
Be prepared for lots of walking because the place is huge. Don't stop in front, continue walking to the end where you find the vintage stuff. They are housed in warehouse-liked single storey buildings.

Third Tip:
Pls do not bring young children because there's nothing interesting for the kids and they will be bored. Besides, those prams/strollers don't work well in that sort of place.

Fourth Tip:
Reach the place around 7pm because the stalls don't open too early. We were there around 630pm and they were still setting up the stalls.

As of this weekend June 8-9 (I think) it has moved to Secon Square. Not all the stallholders wanted to move so there may continue to be some kind of market at Kamphaeng Phet. You'd probably want to check before you set off.

Talad Rod Fai is actually a market for vintage stuff but there is also a section selling modern goods.

I took the BTS to On Nut and then a taxi to the market. Unfortunately the taxi driver made a wrong turn and drive the opposite direction.

He smile apologetically and I still tip him THB30 despite that. The reason is that he is just a very friendly driver.

It is advisable to actually alight at Udom Suk BTS and take a cab from there. At Udom Suk BTS, exit from Exit 3 and hail a cab from there as it is along the way.

When you see Seacon Square, tell the driver to drop you off opposite the Mall and walk the overhead bridge. It will save you precious time.

Once you at the side of the Mall, do not enter the mall. Instead walk towards Ha Ha Mall (what a name!).

When you see the bow of a ship, you have reach the entrance of the market.

Turn left into the market. You will be greeted by a long corridor. Walk down the corridor towards the center of the market.

As mentioned, it is market for vintage and it has the retro look.

There are many restaurants and shops along the corridor.

There is even a shop that sells replicas of guns!

This market is also a food heaven. It sells all kinds of food including mutabak and insects!

As I am still early, the number of visitors is till low. I can roam around freely. I enjoyed all the retro stuff they have on display.

However around 1915hrs, the crowds suddenly start to swell and there is a significant number of foreign tourist.

I quickly make my exit and took a taxi to Udom Suk BTS.

Went to rod fai night market on the second day of my trip after doing a lot of crazy shopping since morning. I was feeling so tired from carrying my heavy bag (cross-bodied) and had decided to sling it at the side and continued my shopping. A few minutes later, someone bumped into me without apologizing and I turned back there were about 4 people or more.... shortly, I had noticed the buckle of my bag was opened so I closed it back thinking that probably I didn’t close it well. Then when I was about to make payment for my stuffs, I realized my purse was gone.
I was panicking and afraid as all my money were in it. Was crying, rushing up and down thinking that I might had dropped it or any kind souls would return me.. but it won’t be the case. ( Couldn’t think properly at that point of time )
Anyway....
DO NOT LET YOUR GUARD DOWN!
Please take good care of your belongings!
No matter how tired you are please stay alert at all time!!
KEEP YOUR BAG AT THE FRONT!
Do not bring a lot of cash!
Hope sharing this will help a lot of people.💙

Absolutely loved this place! My wife and I went there on a Thursday evening during March 2016. We were staying near the MBK centre, we got on the National Stadium Skytrain and got off at On Nut station (20 mins), then we took a cab from On Nut station to the market (25 mins). Most drivers don't know about this market so just tell them you want to go to Seacon Square Shopping Mall, the market is literally behind it, you won't miss it. The driver charged us 150baht for it.

We got to the market about 7:30pm, most of the stalls had been set up, we saw some really unique items...I shopped quite a bit and bargaining was great fun. It wasn't crazy busy so we had a great time, we spent about 2.5-3 hours there going through the various stalls and antique shops. The stalls were all so different in colours and the items they were selling, there were plenty of places to eat.

I would highly recommend this market, a lot of the local people come here and they all mind their own business. You can find some really cheap cool items here! We left about 10pm and got a cab from outside Seacon Square shopping mall. There's a line of cabs so I don't think getting hold of one would be a problem. The driver convinced us that there is not traffic now and he could get us back to the hotel in 20 minutes, he was spot on so I paid him 300baht (50baht extra).

All in all a great night out!
