One of my favorite activities in Phuket is go to the open markets, the open markets are really fun to visit, if you love fresh veggies,seafood and fruits this is the place to go.
Markets are located all over Phuket at different locations throughout the week. My favorite is the one here, which is located in Kata Beach. I run into a lot of Phuket chefs when I go to the market, quite a few of the restaurants in Phuket pick out there fresh produce for cooking.
Have you ever been to a Phuket open market? If you haven´t, please do so, they are a lot of fun to visit and you can really see some of Thailand´s most famous foods. Yeah, you can just go to the local grocery store and get just about everything you need, but nothing beats an open market experience.
Open markets are located all over Phuket on any given day; you just have to do your research. Once you get to the market it is very easy to get overwhelmed, but think of it as saving a bunch of cash and really getting some fresh food, you could literally saves hundreds of Baht by using the market.
So my advice to you is, when you are in Phuket, find an open market and enjoy all the wonderful foods from Thailand, it really is a joy.
