Markets in Lampang town

Our rating:

Lampang’s not overly blessed with markets and the main city centre one, Talaat Rassada, just across the old Ratsadapisek Bridge, is barely worth a peek unless you happen to be passing by.

Talaat Kao Jao, slightly out of the centre just by the railway station, is often livelier, especially morning times, plus there’s some good rice and noodle stalls down that way.

Much more interesting are the two evening Walking Street Markets: one on Fridays on Wangnua Road in the old town and a second, Kad Kong Ta, on the riverbank Talaat Khao Road on Saturdays and Sundays.

The former is more food orientated while the latter is a mix of handicrafts and food, since the street already has its fair share of permanent cafes. Both start up around 17:00 and run until 21:00ish. They are lively and worth a look -- they even have occasional traditional music.
