HERE ARE photos that we took during a previous trip to Thailand which could give you an idea about the Talad Thai Market, a privately developed wholesale market where farmers can bring their harvests for wholesale distribution. There are a few stalls, however, where small amounts can be purchased.
Talad Thai Market is ahuge place which we estimate to be more than 30 hectares, about an hour’s drive north of Bangkok. The wholesale prices are about half the retail price in Bangkok markets.
We are just featuring photos from the fruit section. There are equally big sections of flowers and ornamentqals, fishery products, vegetables, meat products and others.
Talad Thai Market is where the smaller markets in different parts of Thailand get their supplies. And it is where farmers bring their harvests in expensive SUVs and other delivery vehicles.
