Tucked well away from downtown in a very jungle spot, this ‘floating’ market is actually a walk around market not a boat type. Although it is on a canal that’s true. It’s still on water though so it counts. It is called Bang Nam Phueng and it is ONLY open on Saturday and Sunday
Primarily full of locals doing some shopping, browsing or eating, you’ll still see an occasional tourist here. There are many sections and it’s a lot bigger than it looks. Fruits & veggies, flowers, clothing, handcrafted goods, honey & spices, and of course food&drink. These are in snacks and sit down restaurants.
The prices here are very reasonable and you can negotiate a little. The restaurants especially are very well priced. You can also buy clothes and some other bits and bobs here. Same as most markets tbh
The area is popular to bike around, or you can stroll back to the ferry. It’s not the biggest or most well known market but it’s absolutely worth your time.
