Farmer’s Market near Jatujak Market in Bangkok
Across Kamphaeng Phet Road from the Jatujak (or JJ) Market is a terrific farmers market that focuses primarily on all types of Thai food and the ingredients to make Thai food. In addition to fresh and live seafood, there are large sections of prepared foods for takeaway and fresh vegetables and fruit. It is know in proper English as the “Marketing Organization for Farmers” (MOF) Market (but never ask for it by its English name as no one will know what you’re talking about). It is locally known as the Talat (market) “Or-tor-kor” which derives its name from the Thai initials for MOF. There is also a sizable food court with most dishes ranging in the 30-50 baht range.
It’s a great place to take photos as the structure itself is tall-roofed with great sightlines.
You can get to the market by crossing Kamphaeng Phet Road from Jatujak. This can be done above ground or by walking into the MRT Kamphaeng Phet Station and crossing underground and then up on the other side. I recommend this second option as there is no traffic to be concerned about underground. This link will show you the location of the market and its proximity to Jatujak Market.
