On day 2 after our lunch at Naiyang beach, we chanced upon this weekend fresh market located very near to the beach (quite near to Dewa Phuket Resort). When we passed by the piece of land before lunch, it was still empty and within 1.5hrs, all the stores were set up!
Both of us have always been keen in exploring local markets as this is the best way to have a sneak peek at the locals' way-of-life. The market was sort of divided into 3 sections - 1 section selling clothes and sundries, 1 section fresh food and 1 section cooked food. This is somewhat similar to our Singapore wet market, just that this was a "pop-up" market.
We were charged 20 baht, although I saw on the signage that a bowl was 15 baht. Oh well, special price for tourists I guess. The glass jelly dessert tasted refreshing in this hot and humid weather, albeit a little too sweet.
Some deep fried grasshoppers and silk worms for those who dare!
Looked so succulent and yummy. Unfortunately we were too full to consume any food or snacks apart from the glass jelly. If we were to start with this fresh market first, I would be tempted to try all the different food stuff and skip a proper lunch.
Next and final post, I will share about the spa experience we had at Bangtao area. Stay tuned!
