Banzaan Market in Phuket

Thai Fresh Market in Patong Beach

Banzaan Market in Patong is a modern-looking Thai fresh market on Sai Kor Road, right behind the Jungceylon megamall. You can get anything that one would expect from a local market but in a much more pleasant environment. Prices are reasonable as well. 

The Banzaan Market is the brainchild of a well-known Phuket family who sought to offer shoppers an alternative experience other than visiting a typical local market. The word banzaan means fresh market in Hokkien, a Chinese dialect popular among many overseas Chinese communities throughout Southeast Asia.
