As well as places to eat and drink across the market, Chatuchak Market also offers fresh and dry produce for locals, but also tourists wishing to try their hand at making Thai dishes themselves from scratch.
This dried food includes not only spices and flavourings but dishes such as dried fish and shrimps, as well as ingredients for many traditional Thai dishes. Many stalls will also offer the opportunity to try before you buy, so if it is just to taste foods you may not experience in your hotel for example, then be sure to visit and take in the different smells and tastes.
A common product within JJ Market is dried fruit which can be picked up periodically throughout your journey through the stalls. The packets cost around 100-200 Baht per pack and are very tasty. Many store holders will let you try before you buy so be sure to ask before purchasing!
