Table Cafeteria @ Thailand – video

There’s a saying that if you really want to get to know a country, you should visit its local markets. In this market, they have a set up a table where market goers can sit at this “table cafeteria” and enjoy the treasures of fresh produce.

In Thailand and for that matter, and in most Eastern Asian cultures, there are basically two types of markets; the permanent and the moving markets.

In Thailand, the first type is known as a Talad sod, or fresh and wet market, that is a more permanent market. They always operate in the same place, at the same time and seven days a week.

Talad nat  is more is a community ‘meeting market’, similar to the weekend markets you’ll find in many other countries where farmers markets bring their produce to sell. There are lots of them in every village. Local shoppers go there because the produce is usually fresher than in supermarkets and cheaper.
