Here are a few of the many faces of Khlong Toei Market. Instituted in 1850 Khlong Toei is the largest farmers market in Thailand. Life at Khlong Toei Market begins at 2 am, even before the sun rises, and ends around 6 pm. Porters trickle in with their goods. You can mingle with the regular customers, from restaurant staff to housewives, as they browse through the myriad of fresh produce.
