this is the best market in thai, you can experience to see trains passing by in the market while you standing just next to the train, fruits and other things here cheaper than bangkok, be careful when trains passing by you

Near the train station is enough space to park your car. Just like any other market in Thailand. Maybe you need to walk a few blocks, but there are signs (and a policebox to ask)
