List of night markets in Bangkok 2023

Check out the list of Bangkok’s night markets in 2023 that are operating, with addresses, opening hours, and what you can expect to find.

Night markets form part of Thailand’s night scene and are avenues for locals to socialize after work or over the weekends. They are also must-visits for tourists in the Land of Smiles.

Night markets were traditionally smaller in scale, consisting of a group of hawkers congregating at a common street to peddle their wares and food to serve only the local communities. In recent years just before the COVID-19 pandemic, newer and bigger night markets had sprung up with artistically designed and carnival-like atmospheres. 

Some of them did not survive the pandemic as businesses at these night markets were badly affected. Not only were there no tourists in the kingdom, but there were also restrictions on locals who visited them. Popular night markets in Bangkok like Talad Rot Fai night market and Patpong night market had closed down. 

Fortunately, these night markets are finally given a new lease of life in September 2022 when all COVID restrictions were lifted and tourists can travel to Thailand like before the pandemic.

We have compiled a list of operating Bangkok night markets with their address, operating hours, and nearest public transportation below (as of December 2022):

Platinum Fashion Mall Street Food

Platinum Fashion Mall is located in the touristy Pratunam area and right next to the famous CentralWorld. It is often associated with being a marketplace for wholesale apparel and is popular with tourists from neighboring Malaysia and Singapore. A seemingly make-shift mini bazaar has been operating outside the mall since 2020 and is still active in 2022.

Other than offering delectable Thai street snacks and food, there are also stalls that sell souvenirs, apparel, and pouches in this market of fewer than 50 stalls. If you are visiting Platinum Mall for your shopping fix, do not miss out on visiting this small bazaar just outside on the ground floor. Also, walk further up towards Grand Diamond Suites hotel to explore a couple more stalls along the same stretch of the road.

Pratunam Night Market

Pratunam Night Market is one of the longest-operating night markets in Bangkok’s city center. It is a makeshift market in which the site it sits on is an ordinary road in the day, but turns into a night market after tents are erected in the evening.

The market is patronized mainly by tourists who stay in the Pratunam area, especially by those at the adjacent 88-floor Baiyoke Sky Hotel. It used to house hundreds of stalls selling souvenirs, fashion, accessories, and street snacks. However, during our team’s visit in September 2022, the market was rather muted and there were very limited food stalls. It comprised less than 50 stalls that sell mainly apparel, passport covers, souvenirs, bags, and toys.

For visitors to this bazaar before 8 pm, consider walking to the Platinum Mall nearby to get some Thai street food just outside its complex.

Silom Night Market

The Silom Night Market is an unofficial market created by the uncoordinated congregation of hawkers along Silom Road.

It comprises mostly food stalls and is held on the pavement that stretches from Si Lom MRT station all the way to Bangkok Bank’s building. From around 5 pm every day, hawkers push their carts to the side of the road to sell traditional Thai dishes and snacks to workers who pass by after knocking off from work. Prices of food here are very economical, starting from only THB 30 for a pack of rice with Thai style omelet (ไข่เจียว).

The night bazaar used to be a complement to the Patpong Night Market which is on the opposite side of the road. The latter used to sell apparel, accessories, and personal items. However, the Patpong market is no longer operational today.

Jodd Fairs Night Market

Jodd Fairs is a new night market that sprung up in September 2021 during the pandemic. While several unverified sources online reported that this market is a revived Talad Rot Fai Ratchada Night Market, it is important to note that the bazaar is NOT located on the same site as the original train market.

This market is hip, trendy, and appeals to a youthful audience. Apart from just being just a food fair, it offers products ranging from fashion wear, furniture, food, souvenirs to farm produces. There are also communal dining spaces within the compound for patrons to consume their snacks and food.

The One Ratchada

The One Ratchada Night Market is the newest kid on the block that started only in September 2022. It sits on the site of the former Train Night Market Ratchada Night Market and houses more than 100 stalls offering a range of products and services from food, apparel, accessories, to manicure.

The bazaar exudes a tropical feel with many palm trees placed in its compound. Its walkways are wide and laid with benches where patrons can sit for a short break. Ample shared dining tables are available in the market for patrons to comfortably eat their food and snacks.

JJ Green 2 Night Market

While the name JJ Green 2 Night Market may suggest that it is in the Chatuchak area just like the famous Chatuchak Weekend Market (or JatuJak weekend market), it is actually 10 kilometers away! Its name came from its former self JJ Green Night Market which was near Chatuchak. Its nearest MRT station is Nonthaburi Civic Center, which is about 10 minutes away by car.

The night market comprises over 100 stalls offering a mix of food, fashion, and artistic crafts. Retro apparel, old-school film cameras, and hidden gems can be found at this fair. The bazaar is lightly decorated with most vendors just having a table to peddle their wares.

Indy Night Market

Indy Night Market is a mega bazaar in the Thonburi area providing a large assortment of street food, local crafts, fashion, and accessories. 

Like the now defunct Artbox at Queen Sirikit National Convention Center that offered patrons an avenue to dine, drink and chill in shipping containers, there are container-inspired bars and restaurants at Indy Market that also offer conducive environments with booze and music for friends to chat and chill in.

This night market is mostly frequented by locals and is lesser known to tourists. The main reason is due to its proximity to the residential neighborhood without any major touristy landmarks nearby. Nevertheless, it is a good place for visitors to chill in the Thai way.

Srinagarindra Train Night Market

Also known as Rot Fai Market Srinakarin, this night bazaar is not to be confused with the popular Roi Fai Ratchada Market located right in the city center. Srinagarindra Train Night Market is situated further out of the city core and nearer to the Suvarnabhumi airport. 

The only public transportation available is a bus stop beside Seacon Square. If you plan to travel there by BTS, you can drop off at On Nut station and take a 30-minute taxi ride to the venue.

Vintage is the theme of the Srinakarin Train Night Market. Apart from antiques and vintage items on sale, the décor is filled with old-school elements with a vintage car, parts of an old propeller aircraft, and zinc roofs on the buildings. Visitors to this market can also find a wide variety of shops from street food, fashion wear, nail salons, tattoo studios, to bars.

Apart from being just a market where you can buy local crafts and designer products, Chang Chui Plane Night Market it is also a exhibition gallery and art performance space where artists showcase their art pieces and talent. Featuring a life-size airplane in the middle of its compound, the bazaar is also artistically decorated, exuding an artsy ambience as visitors stroll through the pathways. There are also restaurants and bars for shoppers to take a break or while away the evening in the company of live music performances.

This market is lesser known to tourists as it is located more than 10 kilometers away from Bangkok’s city center and is not easily accessible via public transport. However, if you are looking to visit a unique night market in Bangkok and have some time to spare, do include it in your travel itinerary.
