Read my reviews on the Night Bazaar, Saturday and Sunday Night Markets. This falls behind the Saturday and Sunday markets, mainly due to it's size and street food offerings but it comes into its own in terms of dry food products.

It sells most of the same stuff as the other markets, it's definitely less crowded and although I didn't try the seafood restaurants (see other reviews), these were packed and looked clean.

I spent around 500 baht on 3 massive bags of dried fruits, cooking ingredients (I took part in a cooking course so was stocking up) and awesome pork scratchings! For the amount of what I bought, I think I got a good deal (obviously haggled). I would be paying much more in Malaysia for the dried mangos, longans, papaya, durian etc. The Thai chilli paste was just over a pound a bottle and I bought 3 of these. Finally, the pork scratchings were amazing!

There is a small ice cream shop which does a delicious rum raisin...

If you do go to the Night Bazaar, try and find this place. Hopefully you won't regret it and end up buying loads of food as well as trying the restaurants whom others are mentioned

Although the Anusarn Market is much smaller than the Night Bazaar, it has everything you could ever need with far fewer crowds located under 1 roof! There are many stalls that have a wide variety of handicrafts. There is clothing, handbags, jewelry, wire art, paintings, woodcrafts, metalwork, etc. Bargaining is a must, but be reasonable. This is the primary source of income for these people, and in the end, you are really just haggling over a few mere dollars. There are also multiple restaurants and food stalls located throughout. There is a large entertainment stage that showcases local music, dance and cabaret entertainment. After you become weary from walking and shopping, you can stop by one of the massage shops and get a foot rub or dunk your feet in a fish tank. The market opens every night at roughly between 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm and runs until midnight. Fun for the whole family!

Many stall selling knick knacks and local souvenirs. Nice time getting some bargains here. Wouldn't try the Indian restaurants here as the food here don't look authentic. However, the seafood restaurants here have a fine selection.

Spent an enjoyable couple of hours easy to view the stalls without being pushed, elbowed or having your feet trodden like in the nearby night market. Husband purchased very good quality t-shirts here, Aussie sizes.

This market is off the street from the night Bazaar and very deceiving how big it is. Fantastic variety of stalls and amazing places to eat. Visited there 2 nights and ate at the most wonderful seafood restaurant. You can also have cheap meals at the stalls 30B and finish it off with a fruit shake. Great bargains but don't forget to haggle for the price!
