The market places

Several markets exist in the centre of town as well as in the surrounding districts. Each one has its own particularities and proposes different articles and products : the vegetable market or Talat Meuh sells fresh products coming from all over the region (serpents and bats to nibble, insects, fruit and vegetables...), the "caterer’s" market with their more or less traditional dishes, the night market with its hundreds of stalls, all offering traditional objects ; but also the old Darat Market, the Chinese market (or Talat Tchine), the Phousi market or Phôssi Talat : large covered market), the Nam Vieng Kham, etc.
