This traditional Thai market sells an array of fresh vegetables, fruits, and tasty food. The market attained its popularity mainly because of its location. It is located on both the sides of a railway track, where trains run directly through the market. Since it is running safely between the small shops, the local business is also growing like never before. The customers need to walk along the train line and move sideways when the train arrives.
