Update (Mar 2015): Talad Rod Fai 2 (Ratchada) is up!
I had the chance to visit the old Talad Rod Fai last year, Dec 2012, before the market’s lease expired this year. They were forced to move out of the location to a further flung place, which is out of the way compared to the old location. It’s quite a distance from the city centre but I still think it’s worth a visit!
The market sells really varied stuff so you won’t know what you might just find. There’s plenty of vintage homeware, cheap slippers and mobile alcoholic bars. There’s also a row of bars/pubs playing acoustic music, some jam Thai rock and plenty of small coffee shops. I bought a pretty rainbow foldable umbrella here.
