Transporter With An Orange Vest

The man wearing an orange vest was a transporter in Khlong Toei Market

Many local people came to purchase foodstuffs to Khlong Toei Market. Some shoppers came here for the home cooking. Yet I thought most shoppers came here to purchase for the business. The reason why I thought that was the shoppers were not always walking easily with a shopping basket.

The shoppers on business might buy large-volume foodstuffs. And there were many transporters who carried the purchased goods. The man in this photo was one of them.

I have noticed that many men wearing an orange vest were seen in the market. Yet I didn't know what they were doing at the beginning. I thought they were cleaners because the passages in this market were trash-strewn.

Yet it was not true. Every transporter wearing an orange vest carried a big basket. And they carried purchased perishable food instead of the shopper. The transporter in this photo carried a basket happily.
