We had told you many different markets like Warorot Market in the city located right along the Ping River, Toon Fah Bod  local market in San Pa Tong district as the biggest local markets out town. (Most people known as the Cow and Buffaloes market as they have the cow and buffaloes for the farmers to buy them for working in the fields. Rustic Market or known as Jing Jai Market, the crafts and organic market which located not to far from the old town.

( Kard = Market / Ba-Paow = local northern dialect word to call the coconut tree or the fruit itself.) From the old town, it would take around 15-20 minutes to get there. By the environment of the market which located in the coconut farm and the water channels which run through the coconut farm. Some of the areas in the coconut farm has divided in the small shops.

This market opens only in the weekend (Saturday and Sunday) from 7am -4 pm.
