The famous railway market is not the only market in Mae Klong. There are several other markets in the vicinity of the station. These markets were probably the main markets in the town in the past. The market on the tracks may have been opened by those who could not open stores in the original market. However, because of the rarity of the market being on the railroad tracks, only the market on the tracks has become famous. No one knows how life will turn out. The one who was thought to be half a man has turned out to be the main one. Now the railroad track market has become such a tourist attraction that it attracts visitors from abroad and has become a symbol of the town.

If I were asked which market I would rather shop at, the railroad market or this market, I would come here. Shopping in a market crowded with strangers is a hassle. There is nothing unique about this market that attracts tourists. But that's okay. The daily life must pass in a simple way.

The woman in the photo is one who worked at such a market. She was working silently in a deserted market with no tourists.
