The street vendors were just refreshing the inner man in the busy Sampeng market

The narrow street stretched in Sampeng Market of Bangkok was crowded. The stores were open side by side and many shoppers walked the street. Besides, there were street vendors in spots. They opened their own shop in front of other stores. In one view, they seemed to obstruct other businesses. However, it was not uncommon to be seen here. I wondered whether the store owners were tolerant or it was solved with money. Supposedly, it was the latter.

Anyway, it was the same to become hungry when both the shop clerks and street vendors kept working. When I came to one of the street vendors, they were just having lunch. Because they couldn't leave their shops, some curb services might be available here. And one woman was just stuffing her face.
