Krabi Town Morning Market: A Typical Thai Talad

Markets all over the world lure me with their vibrant color and local life, each country with its unique specialties and variations. Exotic fruits, nameless vegetables and unknown produce nudging the familiar are a pictorial feast for the eyes begging to be photographed. A mix of flower fragrance and cooking aromas mingle with fish and other less appealing odors in the air.

I remember markets blasting every sense. Sadly, for me, severe concussion from a horse riding accident years ago left me with little sense of smell except the odd whiff snatched occasionally. Like a constant cold blocking the nose, but without the breathing problems! It saves me from the stench but deprives me of the fragrant in life.

Thai markets, known as talad, don’t disappoint although I know I’m not getting the full experience of sensory overload. A few months ago while staying in Krabi town on the coast of southern Thailand, I visited the morning market with a friend. There was so much to see we ended up spending a few hours wandering around buying fruit and taking photos. Here are just some of my images from that day at the market.
