Local Fresh Market in Phuket

Phuket Tourist Information Guide

Read Introduction

For those who wish to truly get to know Phuket better and immerse themselves in Thai culture, we suggest venturing around one of the many markets, like a Local Fresh Market, here on this beautiful island. These fresh markets, or "talaad sod" as they are locally known, offer a wonderful abundance of fresh meats, produces, spices and cooked foods as well as the standard jeans, shoes, handbags and handicrafts. Whether you are out buying your weekly groceries or searching for a new pair of flip flops these wonderfully stocked and aromatic markets have exactly what you need.

The difference between a Local Fresh Market and a weekend market is that the local market is always in the same place and opens and closes at the same time every day. While every market is unique on its own charming way they mostly offer the same items and products as other local markets. Local markets are almost always overflowing with fresh produce picked daily such as carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, onions as well as barrel after barrel of fresh and dried herbs and spices that take your sense on aromatic adventure through the history of Thai cuisine. One of the finer aspect of these markets is the meat table where some of the finest pork beef and chicken has been expertly prepared and laid with pride on each vendors table. Another prideful fare is Phuket renowned seafood, caught daily and conveying the rich culture of Thailand's fishing history.

While the  Fresh Markets do offer the finest selection of fresh meats and produces, they also offer something a little more unique. Aside from the food aspect each Local Fresh Market has rows and rows of booths selling a variety of clothing and personal items. Whether it be shoes, jeans or even handbags these plentiful markets are where the locals shop and as such provide many household necessities at decent prices. So next time you are looking for a new shirt or a hand crafted souvenir to take home be sure to check your Local Fresh Market first!
