In the course of walking around Khlong Toei Market, I came to a section where many butchers were crammed. The blocks of meat were displayed in every shop. The shop in this photo was one of them. Its table was occupied by the chunks of meat. And the big blocks of meat were hung from the ceiling.
Being surrounded by meat, some women wearing an apron were working together there. They seemed to be busy to sort when I came here. And they kept working without noticing me. However, I didn't intend to buy anything. I just wanted to watch them working.
Anyway, many amounts of meat were there. And they might be sold out in one day. The shop was windswept. And the meat was also exposed to the wind. So they could get bruised the next day.
Khlong Toei Market is Bangkok's biggest fresh market. It is located on Rama IV Road near the Khlong Toei and Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre MRT stations in the Khlong Toei neighborhood. The market offers low prices on raw meat, seafood, farm produce, and a few other items (clothing, kitchenware, etc.) and is open daily from 6.00 am – 2.00 am. In January 2010 CNN listed it as one of the most authentic markets in Bangkok as well as a place to avoid when hung over.
