The area
Address
Neighborhood: Silom
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.

Great selection of tropical fruits and produce. Very clean and orderly. Lots of locals shopping but the vendors were friendly to us as well.
Try some spring onion dumplings.

My go to wet market
Jul 2019 • Solo
Bangkok has many wet markets that are worth exploring and visiting and Sam Yan Market is one of them. This is my go-to market for me for many years, although on more expensive side but it is cleaner and quality of the goods are high. It is right in the middle of the city closed proximity to MBK and Siam. Most of the people who are frequent there are Chinese-Thai. I usually buy my fresh fruits and veggies there.

Interesting trip to local wet market
Apr 2019
Probably went at wrong time of day (around 8:30 am) as many stalls not yet open. Better to visit when busier. However, had an enjoyable side trip to the nearby fire station where an officer greeted us in a friendly way and invited us to take photos. One for the travel album 😍

great local food court, a different theme than most
Jul 2018 • Family
The part I'm talking about is the food court area on the second floor, with an actual market on the first floor instead (a place to buy fruits and vegetables and such). We go there regularly, to the "Oho Steak" food vendor. The theme isn't exactly like the other range of food court areas in Bangkok, which usually split between being either a local-style lower-end version similar to those in Tesco-Lotus complexes or more upscale versions like the Food Loft in a nicer mall. This is in the middle.

It's relatively open and breezy, which works well given how hot Bangkok always is. In the past there had been a lot of different food vendors there but that's narrowed down to just a few after they were closed for awhile for renovation. We tend to buy more Western oriented battered steak dishes there at that shop than anything else, versions of Chicken Cordon Bleu (local style interpretations; good food but not like four star French cooking). I had them make me a tofu-chili-cashew version of cashew chicken back when I was a vegetarian and like it so much I keep ordering mostly that even though I've let that diet restriction go. They sell Thai food as well, and other shops sell whatever else those sell, with a common seating area.

All in all it's a nice, middle-ground inexpensive local place to eat. It's not really a destination dining experience, it wouldn't seem, but if someone is already in the area checking out the relatively new Chulalongkorn Centennial Park nearby might be of interest, about a block away.

Friendly interesting market
Feb 2018 • Couples
I was a bit worried when I was told we were going to a market quite early in the day but I was pleasantly surprised (I suppose the main buyers go earlier) by how quite and clean it was. There were no unpleasant odours, even when we had the chance to try durian fruit which is renown for its rank smell.
There were loads of flowers being made into garlands for offerings in the temples, beautiful fragrance.

An enticing market
Jan 2017 • Couples
A welcoming, well organized market with wonderful fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, and the omnipresent flower garlands. If Bangkok is your starting point in Thailand, known for its colorful markets, this is a good first stop.

Clean and less chaotic
Aug 2016 • Family
This market is located near the Chulalongkorn University. It sells the basic fresh wet market produce as well as dried produce like dried prawns. Besides fresh produce like fruits and vegetables, there are stalls selling Thai desserts and snacks. The prices here seem slightly higher though the quality of the products seem to be better. The market is also cleaner and less chaotic. There is a food court on the second floor selling mainly Western food catering to students of the nearby University and office workers.
