Phuket weekend market (locally known as Naka Market), located along Chao Fa West Road just outside Phuket Town not far from Central Festival, is a fascinating jumble of secondhand goods, curios, pirated items, live animals and a large amount of great local food to sample. It really is worth a visit even if you're not planning on buying anything. If you were to ask, "What's for sale here?" The answer would probably be, "How much time do you have?" as the list of goods is endless.

Fantastic markets, lots of different foods, lots of clothes and shoe stores, something different to do on a weekend. I would suggest coming at night when it's a little cooler , it's very hot inside with no ventilation, Especially around where they cook the fresh food. Great visit!!

When we were at Patong, we were told by our tour guide to hold on on shopping for souvenirs and little trinkets until we get here. And it's true! The prices here compared to the night markets of Patong were comparable. Lots of locals shopping here as well, so you know it's a pretty good deal. The best part of... More

Plenty of variety of fake brands at cheaper prices than Patong and without the same level of pressure. Many of goods had prices that had marked down . Plenty of locals shopping there which always a good sign. Good quality food.

There's a lot of markets in Phuket, they provide a different atmosphere combining food with shopping. Naka Market is exactly that; it's amazing to see so many scooters in one vicinity. Definitely something to check out whilst your in the area.

The Phuket Weekend Markets are called a few different names such as Chao Fah Variety, Jatujak or Talad Tai Rot or the weekend markets. They are located just off Chaofa West Rd opposite Wat Nakha which is about a 20 minute drive from Patong Beach. These markets are now Phuket's biggest weekend markets and you can buy everything here, fresh... More

We visited the market a couple of nights ago and loved it. Lots of different foods to try, fresh seafood, bbq, fruit, pancakes, ice cream. Reasonably priced. A good selection of clothing or souvenir stalls to the rear, don't forget to haggle! If we were in the area again we would definitely go back.
