Historically, Kamphaeng Phet was a big trading centre and local people keep the tradition alive, not least through the Banana Market, on the Asia Highway just south of the city. Roadside markets are common in Thailand but this one is different: it runs for almost a kilometre on each side of the highway. The market is named after the little, bright yellow, sweet bananas grown in Kamphaeng Phet called egg bananas (kluai khai) but there is much more on offer than bananas and banana plants - wooden furniture, baskets and other woven products, brooms (big and small), pork crackling, fruit and vegetable chips, sauces, preserves... the list goes on. The market is popular with people traveling between Bangkok and points north, especially on weekends. Many people use it to buy gifts (such as the freshly cooked chips or pork crackling) for friends, family or colleagues back home. An interesting way to get out and stretch your legs on a long trip

It is best to see this on the way in or out of KP as it is a long, maybe 1km, stretch of stalls alongside the main KP to Nakhon Sawan road, just outside of KP. There are some unusual Thai foods like dried fruit and bugs here,

The Banana market is very easy to get to as it's on both sides of Route 1 (Asia Highway), a few kms south of the city. Many people stop there while southbound, on their way back to Bangkok. Of course the market has many different types of bananas, but also other foods, souvenirs, wood crafts, etc etc. One of our favorite items is crispy chips, such as potato, banana, durian, taro, etc. Incredibly fresh. You can even ask the merchant to make a fresh batch for you right then and there. The market is quite long and will probably take a hour to walk it, if you want to see every shop.

So many different bananas! And a chance to see how they are stored and taste the different types.
No need to allocate more than 20 mins here but worth stopping off.

With the strong support of the government, numerous outdoor stalls were set up in the vast space stretching from the rotary in front of Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park to the city hall and other government offices. The main road was made into a semi-permanent arcade to minimize the effects of weather, and I was surprised at the number of stalls, so large that it was difficult to walk around in a short time. The market was not much different from other regular markets in regional cities, with a variety of B-grade and miscellaneous products, but there was also a well-stocked section for local OTOP products, and the variety of stores and number of stalls, which is hard to believe for a regional city, seemed to be superior to all of Thailand. In Kamphaeng Phet, the commercial area around Sirichit Park and Rim Ping Market, which were developed early along the Ping River, have established themselves as solid shopping areas, but I think you shouldn't miss this market.
