- Where to Shop in Phuket
Fresh markets in Phuket are always a great way to get close to real, local life with minimal effort. Markets are everywhere around the island, every community and every village has one, small or large, permanent or occasional. Some are daily markets, often open until the end of the afternoon, and some are available only on certain days of the week. Only a few city markets are inside clean concrete buildings, such as the Banzaan Market, but most are just wood poles and plastic sheets in a field.
Local markets are more fun than city markets, and you’ll discover more unusual veggies and foods. Don’t let the ‘raw’ look of meat fool you; it is fresher than the meat sold in aseptic wrappings under shiny light at the supermarket. One section of the market sells fresh products, another part foods and condiments and a lot of dishes cooked on the spot. Further, you will find clothing, cooking and home accessories with mountains of colourful plastic containers and buckets. And even second-hand shoes! (does second-hand applies to shoes?)
Banzaan Fresh Market is in Patong Beach behind Jungceylon Shopping Center. It is very clean, nice and easy to visit with a wide range of fresh products: fruits, vegetables, fish, meats and spices. This market is a good photo opportunity as well as a chance to see the many ingredients used in the Thai food you enjoy every day. The fresh market turns into a food market at night.

Phuket Town Central Market
Phuket Town Central Market in Phuket Town is opposite Thai Airways offices, in front of the local ‘blue bus‘ station. The market is large but not so busy, probably because two-thirds of the shops didn’t want to move inside the new market possibly because of the cost, and you will still find them somewhere across the road in a maze of small streets.
