Not many people know about the little market behind Asoke’s BTS.
Bangkok's skytrain, otherwise known as the BTS, links most places in it's major and most important road - Sukhumvit.
Once you exit the skytrain, look for this sign,
And how could you blame them? Smack in the heart of Bangkok’s metropolitan area, only a few minutes walk from designer powerhouses like Fendi and Prada, who would have guessed that a place still existed where you can still get market price produce?
Everyone knows I go gaga for the green stuff.
For an area that oozes opulence and excess, it’s really unthinkable to imagine that ‘Old Bangkok’ is still alive and kicking.
The outside looks like your regular, run-of-the-mill array of food sellers.
Still not sure where it is? Hint: it's on the opposite side of the road from the infamous 'Soi Cowboy', entertainment district.
So much fresh produce is crammed into such a small space, and for the looks of the clientele, it’s a well kept Thai secret.
They sell only the freshest produce here.
My guide for the day, Paw, told me that a lot of the produce brought in, is sold locally to nearby food sellers and thai restaurants; with the large amount of haulers and buyer, I can see why you’d be led to believe that.
Cute cats and old ladies! I'm sold.
Next time you’re in Asoke, why don’t you poke your head in and get in on the secret.
