This food market was right opposite our hotel and we ate there on several occasions. It is an open air so hope it isn't raining! Set right next to the main boxing stadium, it offers an excellent atmosphere and a really fun experience.

It is a strange situation as there are several outlets but they all seem to serve each other's customers? No matter, the food is fabulous and it is very, very cheap. It puts most of the restaurants in town to shame.

They have stalls that sell drinks but we used to nip across to the 7-Eleven right opposite and buy our booze from there. Definitely worth seeking out.

My wife and I visited this market to buy cloth and have a look around. To buy Thai cloth, trinkets, etc, it is definitely much cheaper than the various night markets and other places around Koh Samui. Also, it appears to be an authentic market where the locals shop for their supplies. It did not once occur to me to buy any food from any of the vendors, as it was too authentic for my liking, with the cleanliness not being of a standard I'd expect. However, to see a real market and spend an hour or two mingling with the locals, it is worth a visit, especially given its immediate proximity to the boxing stadium and walking street/food market in Chaweng

Delicious cheap local food. We visited many times for lunch on our trip. Good selection of dishes, quick and easy. Within walking distance if Chaweng Beach.

The same quality, if not better, than the surrounding restaurants, without the mark-up. We ate here on 3 evenings. The seafood stalls are a great experience. You watch them grill or fry the fish/seafood you've chosen right in front of you. The traditional thai food is excellent as well. You'll spend about 50 Baht per person for a non-seafood meal and 100-150 Baht per person for seafood.
I am too jet-lagged to start my rant about the philistine tourists eating at the Italian food stall. Really? Come on.

An interesting food market selling veg, fruit, fish and meat.
This is the place locals go to buy their produce.
It is worth taking an hour out for a stroll around and buy like a local.
I was there to get out of the monsoon rain which swept in for an hour or so.

This is where to buy your local produce at the right price as long as you're happy to make mistakes, buy too much spice sometimes, and get in amongst real Thais living from day-to-day. I will often walk here just to buy small bananas for 35Thb a large bunch, ready to go meals, a huge variety of sweet desserts and all your fresh fruit and vegetable requirements. And no need to bargain - it's all as cheap as already...

Food is amazing and delicious, fresh fish and meat all out on stalls however expensive for a food court. Some of the prices are as much as you would pay in a proper restaurant so if you dont mind paying that then go but not good for people on a budget. both times we ate here the food wasnt all brought out together not great timing. Also think we were charged for food we never received. however do recommend for much good food and atmosphere.
