BANGKOK | Or Tor Kor Market is considered by many to be one of the top fresh markets in the world, and when you visit it’s easy to see why. It’s clean, well organised, and the quality of produce and ready-to-eat food on offer is top notch. In fact, many chefs shop here for their restaurants due to the premium quality of the produce.
Be it meat, seafood, vegetables, or fruit, you can find what you’re looking for at Or Tor Kor. The famous Chatuchak Weekend Market, which is well worth visiting, is located just across the road. If I had to choose one, however, Or Tor Kor would be it. Prices are expensive by Bangkok standards, but when you eat the food, you’ll see why, with a perceptible difference in quality.
Wander through the fresh produce section, and grab yourself some fresh tropical fruits like mangosteen, durian, and lychees to enjoy. Once done, head over to the cooked food section, which spans several “alleys” and a food court. Here, you’ll find all sorts of tasty things, familiar and unfamiliar.
There’s vendors selling assorted curries, soups, and nam priks (chili sauces and dips). There’s an array of dried, fried and steamed products, and skewers being grilled over charcoal as fast as they’re being ordered and enjoyed by locals.
