Talat Thanin

Top choice market in Chiang Mai

North of the old city off Th Chotana (Th Chang Pheuak), this market specialises in ready-to-eat gàp kôw (premade food served with rice) meals, with a whole rear section jammed with vendors offering fish stews, curries, stir-fries and spicy condiments from huge pans, vats and platters. A few curries and a bag of sticky rice will set you back less than 100B.

There's also a lively wet and dry market.
