Just a stone’s throw from Chatuchak Weekend Market, this market formerly known as JJ Green is manned by the former owner of the sadly-missed Ratchada Night Market. This impressively funky space blends a low-key selection of fashionable clothing stalls and rows of industrial-slash-retro drinking parlors.
What we like: The massive variety of items, mostly fashion, antiques and home décor, features more than just hipster clutter. Oh and the good-looking crowd that doesn’t try too hard to stand out.
What to buy: Known as a mecca for car aficionados, the market’s back zone is dedicated to all types of secondhand automobile spare parts (plus bicycles), all of which are pretty open to bargaining. For 80s and 90s kids, there are lots of old-school toys like Tamagotchi and Nintendo devices, plus now-rare cassettes of everyone from The Beatles to Joey Boy.
What annoys us: Largely the same things as at Chatuchak. Plus, if you don’t want to have runins with some irascible shop-owners, note that photography is often prohibited, even if it’s not properly sign-posted. Who goes there: Fashionable young things and snappily-dressed professionals. Some city slickers.
