Actually it's just a market selling raw meats, vegatables, local foods and stuffs if you didn't plan properly.
What made this place so special? Answer is the TRAIN! You can find the answer from youtube or google, so I just giving the advise so you won' miss the special.
Arrive there at least 1.5 hour early, walk around and have your breakfast there, taking some photos, the train is usually punctual, so be prepared and start to find a great location 25 mins before train arrive, take some photos of shopkeepers see how they manage their goods before and after the train, becareful where you stand because the train is approaching real close, really REAL CLOSE!
Cafe at train station is good choice for local foods, not exepensive and foods really yummy.
From Bangkok hotel to maeklong train market and floating market (include boat ride) half day cost about 600 baht only, this should be sufficient to explore and experience the culture. The other floating market I don't think you should visit all because almost the same, you could save the money and time to explore other interesting places.
