One of the best things you can purchase at the market is freshly-made Thai curry pastes, which make up the base of many of Thailand’s most well-loved dishes. You can buy these to take back home with you or to make into a delicious meal at your self-catering apartment – especially if you’ve just taken a Thai cooking class.
Getting here will require hiring a scooter, car, songthaew, or other forms of transportation. If you are staying on the west coast of Samui, it may take around half an hour to get here. However, the journey will be worth it because the town itself is vibrant and alive, and real Thai culture is found here. After a trip to the market, there are several restaurants, shops, and bars that you can explore while in town.
The Nathon Market is located on Chonwithi Road.
