Maharaj Market is in the heart of Krabi town in Thailand. The morning market starts up way early in the morning, about 3 am, and doesn’t wind down until around 10 am. A good time to visit is the 7 – 8 am range.

The newly renovated Maharaj Market in Krabi is nicely organized and despite its heavy traffic, the market is clean and easy to navigate. There are sections for fruit, vegetables, fish, meat, dry food stuffs, and a huge breakfast pre-made food area.

Chilies are worshipped in southern Thai food. These little neon colored yellow, red and green chillies are slightly different and a bit more pungent from normal Thai chilies. Turmeric root, though not overly common in northern Thai food, is used heavily in southern dishes like Gaeng Som (sour hot soup). There are piles of turmeric all over the Maharaj Market. Coconuts, just like bananas and pineapples (and other tropical fruits), are in abundance throughout the market.

The seafood section in the market is filled with loads of fish varieties including dried and fresh. Like other fish markets, you have the choie of either buying your fish whole, or having a fishmonger scrape off the scales and de-gut it for you. Among the assortment of local speciality snacks and sweets, there are also a few classic Thai desserts like Fuktong Sangkaya. Favorite part of Maharaj Market is of course the section where freshly cooked food is served. Banana vendors seem to have an infinite number of bananas, all lined up and waiting to be purchased.
