Local Phuket Markets

Shopping in local markets is more entertaining and fascinating than shopping in malls.  From the fresh food markets, you can learn what the local eats.  See vegetables and herbs that you've never heard of.  And is more likely you can find stalls selling local snacks which you pay 1/10 the price somewhere else.

Here are some local markets I've come across.  Notice some open every day but some only open on weekend.

  • Baanzan Market - open daily from 9a.m.
  • Nanai Road Fresh Market - open daily from 8a.m.
