Why Khlong Toey Fresh Market is special ?

Khlong Toey is a very 'fresh' market, offering low prices on raw meat, seafood, farm produce, and a few other items (clothing, kitchenware, etc). A small, hidden village deep within the Bangkok concrete jungle, this extensive market seems to have a life of its own. Quaintly tucked away within a grimy city block and practically unnoticable from busy Rama IV Road, a pleasantly unexpected, laid-back environment lies within. Some sections can get a bit bloody, and if you're squemish, no worries, as not all sections are strictly filled with raw meat. If you still have an appetite, a few food stalls serve Thai curries and other local staples.

What to explore at Khlong Toey Fresh Market?

Shopping for a gray-market rice cooker is probably not something that will attract your average traveler, but the market's huge selection of seafood, meats, vegetables and fresh fruits is quite a sight, that is well worth the trip for dedicated foodies, or photographers looking to get off the regular tourist trail.


How to get to Khlong Toey Fresh Market?

 Take the MRT subway to Klong Toey station, exit up the escalators and then walk east on Thang Rakfaiko / Rama IV Road for ten minutes until you reach the large intersection of Rama IV and Narong Road. The market will be on your right-hand side. Or, you can take bus numbers 45, 46, 72, 102, or 107 to the area.

ส่วนหนึ่งที่ทำให้ถนนพระราม 4 ติดยาวไปจนถึงตึกช่อง 3 ก็เพราะตลาดนี้แหละครับ ถนนแถวตลาด มี 3 เลนนะ แต่ถูกกันพื้นที่ไป 2 เลน เหลือแค่เลนขวาเลนเดียว ซึ่งถ้าตรงไปโดนบังคับเลี้ยวขวาที่แยกคลองเตย

If you want to see how Bangkok's southeastern denizens shop for groceries, this is the place to go.This was the 4th market I toured while in SE Asia, and it was by far the largest. It is impressive both in its sprawl and by the number of people bustling around, negotiating prices and buying fresh ingredients. Everything you need to cook a meal can be found here, including freshly-harvested produce, recently-butchered meats and organs, fried insects, live snails and seafood, etc. There were also vendors actually MAKING certain ingredients, like rice papers, crepe shells, sticky rice... Every aisle had its share of wonders and opportunities for people-watching.If you want to observe locals but don't mind odors, have shoes or sandals you don't care about (floors are often wet with who knows what), don't care about getting pushed aside or yelled at by buyers from different restaurants in the narrow aisles, this is the perfect market. We went with Helping Hands (Cooking with Poo) as part of our cooking class.

If you are looking for a real local market then this is the place!If you have sensitive eyes and/or stomach, think twice.I loved this place, almost no tourists and everything you can wish for.All the possible fruits, vegetables, and also all the possible meat.This means your usual chicken and pork but also organs, ratmeat,insects....And the fish is litteraly super fresh, as it´s still alive.So now you have an idea of what to expect.One tip: wear close shoes, it´s slippery and wet. and there is some trash on the floor.

Locals frequent this market, while vendors are unfretted by the tourists. Nothing is more impressive than locals filling their food baskets with fresh ingredients. My local supermarket makes me sick, in comparison to the freshness here. Enjoy the variety of produce and fresh products. If you're not into food, don't bother visiting.
