If there is one thing Phuket is notorious for it would have to be the abundance of fresh and weekly markets. With a different market popping up every week in various locations across our tiny island, sometimes it’s nice to know that certain markets will always be in the same place and operate at the same time; and that’s exactly what you get with the Local Fresh Market Bangtao or ‘Talad Nat’ as it is locally known.
Located on Sisunthon Road, heading towards Surin Beach, this wonderful market is known locally as a Talad Sod or Fresh market in English; basically it means that the Local Fresh Market Bangtao operates in the same spot on the same days and at the same time every week. It is a place where local growers and farmers come daily to peddle their freshly grown produce, meats and spices; so for those of you who like to eat fresh and cook at home, this is an ideal place for you to get you daily raw products.
Aside from the cornucopia of fresh veggies, meats and spices this delightful market also boasts stall after stall of clothing items, shoes, bags, hand made jewelry and other nifty hands-crafts as well as food carts and stalls offering all manner of local cuisine. Whether you are looking for an exciting place to grab a cheap meal or looking to buy some souvenirs to bring home this fresh market has it all!
