Suan Ma-Maung Fresh Market

Today I’m going to take you to Suan Ma-Maung Market in Amphoe Muang, Chanthaburi. Ma-muang in Thai means mango and Suan means garden. The market’s name came from the name of Wat Suan Ma-muang (Suan Ma-muang temple) which is close to the market. This market is one of the old markets in Amphoe muang.

The market opens daily. It’s crowded early in the morning and in the evening. You can find various kinds of food such as seafood, vegetables, fruits, meat, dried food, local food and Thai desserts. From outside, you may not think there’ll be a market hiding in such a small street.

For me, Suan Ma-muang market is a great place to see the local life in Chanthaburi. More than that, I’m sure you will not leave this market empty handed.
