Market Time

The food market we’d seen in Cambodia had been impressive, but the one Silasak took us to in Luang Nam Tha was much bigger and much more interesting (although it didn’t feature any mystery meat).

When we arrived around 8am-ish, the market was in full swing (it opened at 5), and as far as I could tell, there were no other tourists there. Lots of shoppers, though. The bulk of the sellers were housed in an enormous main building protected by a metal roof and a lot of makeshift netting, but without walls. It was dirty and crowded and fantastic.
