The Muslim Market Nai Yang is located near the Nai Yang Mosque, close to the Sirinat National Park, and is a small Muslim market. As you probably already know, there is a large Muslim population on Phuket Island. Muslims must eat Halal food exclusively, which is strictly defined in their holy book, the Koran. Because of this, they hold food markets which are totally separated from all the other markets in Phuket, so they can be assured that all food items are created according to the rules of Halal. The main rule specifies that no pork should be consumed in any way. So, you won’t find pork but you will find many other Southern Thai dishes and snacks.
The market has a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables as well as prepared Halal food. Held Monday and Wednesday in the evenings, you can feel free, as tourists from anywhere, to take a walk through and see if there’s any food you want to try. The exact address for this Muslim market is Soi Bangmalauw 2/3, off Thep Krasat Tri-Nai Yang Road in Nai Yang.Related Links: Markets | Tourist Spots | Nearby Nai Yang Tourist Spots
