Pak Khlong Talat is a market in Bangkok well known for its wholesale flowers. However, little is written about the volumes of fresh fruits and vegetables on which Pak Khlong Talat was once established during its reign as Bangkok’s largest bulk produce market. During an early Sunday morning visit, we explored one of the most impressive displays of fresh produce that we’ve ever come across.  The Pak Khlong Talat is a wholesale produce market, evident by its massive displays of fruit and vegetables. There are woven baskets the size of wine barrels that are home to shredded ginger, chilies, and oranges; bundles of lemongrass and asparagus barely able to fit under one’s arm; truckloads of cabbages, onions, and garlic. The sheer volume of produce is incredible! There is a lot of movement with the produce itself. Hand carts, stacked six or eight feet tall with bags and baskets, can be regularly spotted being wheeled through the narrow streets. These goods are on their way to be delivered to other markets or to restaurants. Beautiful and rugged, huge displays of fresh fruit and vegetables stretch on and on throughout the market. Nearly perfect fruit are laid out in repeating rows for potential buyers. The variety is never ending. Some displays weren’t the table set-ups we usually see. The market seems to spill from two- and three-story shop-houses embedded along the narrow market streets. Garage entranceways serve as areas to temporarily stage stacks of fresh produce. What makes the Pak Khlong Talat market memorable and different from other markets we’ve visited is the quiet calmness it evokes. It is quite large (several sois wide) and because it is in Bangkok, we expected it to be packed with people, both Thais and foreign tourists alike.
