Or Tor Gor Farmer's Market Bangkok Reviews
Amazing Thai food without the high prices Mar 26, 2012
This is a farmer's market opposite Chatuchak weekend market. It is open 7 days a week from about 6am. The market sells EVERYTHING! If you can think of it, you can probably buy it! All sorts of fresh fruit and vegetables, that the vendors will let you try before you buy. There is also a fresh meat and fish section, which sells everything from simple minced pork, to huge crab and langoustines.
The best part of Or Tor Gor, however, is the pre-cooked food stalls. You can get Thai green curry, to the more unusual yellow curry stir-fried crab, squid stuffed with pork, or sun-dried meat. Once again, you can ask to try the dishes first.
All the products for sale here are fresh, brought in the same morning, and very cheap. The fruit tends to be sold in larger quantities than you will find on the street, but it is still well-priced.
This is a great place to get a real sense of what Thai people actually eat, not just what you find on Khao San Road!! As of yet, not many tourists know about this place and it remains a very Thai experience.
If you are visiting Chatuchak market, I would strongly recommend spending an hour wandering around this amazing food market.
