The market offers an expansive selection of the freshest food in town. Whether you are looking for seafood, vegetables, fruit, or even some simple traditional Thai meals for takeaway, you can find it here. It’s the preferred shopping market for the locals, so the English of the vendors here is not very good, but it’s relatively easy to get by. The vendors are friendly and accommodating to help make sure that you get what you’re looking for.

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.
