Shopping in Khlong Toey - a multi-sensory fresh market experience

Khlong Toey fresh market is where many of Bangkok's restauranteurs and street vendors go to secure their fresh food. As traditional as it gets, the place is a multi-sensory treat.

Grilled frogs? Fried crickets? We have them in Surin market.

At Surin municipal fresh market you can find anything from a toothpick to a submarine, or so the Thai saying goes. Fancy grilled frogs with coconut milk, red ant eggs and popped rice? It's all there. But don't forget to bargain with the canny vendors, it just adds to the fun. - Nittaya Nattayai
