Going to the morning market at 100-Year-Old Market by Pak Phanang River, Thailand, is a fabulous experience of living the local life by the river.

Late for the Morning Pak Phanang Old Market

It’s probably a little later when we got to Pak Phanang at 11.30 am, and we were told that the morning market is winding down for the day.

Predominately local, this century-old market is worth visiting to feel how the local community starts their day by getting their marketing down by the river.

We were lead to the two buildings with a narrow alley in between.

Not much happening here, except for some motorcycles and locals walking towards the alley.

No locals were coming out of the alley with their groceries or fresh produce.

We looked up.

There was a large wooden signboard straddled between the two buildings. It probably says “100-year-old Pak Phanang Old Market”.

Since none of us could read Thai, we gamely stroll down the alley to find out.

A change and an eye-opener for all of us who shop for our fresh groceries at the hypermarkets.

Surprisingly, the area is relatively dry, and there’s no fishy seafood smell, even though we found some fresh seafood for sale.

Look how narrow the alley is! There’s even a metal staircase to go between the two buildings—fancy climbing down the steep steps.
