Can you believe I was clueless about the concept of farmers’ market until one day my friend mentioned she was going to one held in Bo-Lan restaurant? It seemed interesting. Something different, you know? Then I started digging into it. And discovered a whole new world of community out there who’s “primary goal is to help build strong foundations for communities and focus on life. Working towards sustainability for future generations and our home planet Earth.”
Quite impressive, don’t you think?
And it wasn’t till when I’ve been to one myself that I realised it was wayyyy cooler than I’ve expected it to be.

Normally the market is held at K-Village (Sukhumvit 26) but this specific weekend was at Thonglor 19, DM Home.
It was much smaller with only few vendors out selling but it was all good. As always, I got some fresh and organic vegetables and treated myself with some macaroons and healthy pressed juice.
This was taken just last weekend on their first anniversary. They were selling A LOT of stuff, everywhere around K-Village. It was HOT and crowded. But one thing I realised that day was that everyone seemed so content whether they were part of the vendors, consumers or even bystanders. I could really feel the sense of ‘community’ forming – if that makes sense.
As new as this whole thing is to us Bangkokians, it was definitely a pleasant scene to observe and was glad to see the changes, gradual but happening, in our Thai/Expat community focused on healthy living.
Thank you Bangkok Farmers’ Market for doing what you do.
