Deputy Bangkok Governor Sanon Wangsrangboon recently attended the inauguration of a new weekend farmers’ market aimed at providing local farmers with a platform to sell their agricultural produce, processed goods, and health products. This innovative initiative will take place every Saturday and Sunday, from 6 am to 11 am, and offers customers access to a wide variety of local delicacies from adjacent districts such as Khlong Sam Wa, Wang Thong Lang, Prawet, Lat Phrao, Bueng Kum, and Bang Kapi.

In a unique and environmentally friendly twist, shoppers are rewarded with vegetable seedlings for every 100 baht they spend at the market. With more than 300 seedlings of popular garden vegetables, like bird’s eye chillies, eggplant, and sweet basil, this innovative approach encourages customers to cultivate their own plants and contribute to the local green movement. To date, several hundreds of seedlings have been distributed to loyal customers.

Sanon Wangsrangboon highlighted the advantages of farmers’ markets by stating, “Farmers’ markets not only boost the economy of local communities, but they also provide Bangkokians easy access to top-quality organic products. This project also promotes organic farming at over 200 locations throughout the city, so people can grow their own vegetables to reduce expenses, as well as share the produce with government agencies and schools.”

Furthermore, the Department of Social Development has surveyed additional venues within the city to host future farmers’ markets, with Chatuchak Park, Vachirabenjatas Park (Suan Rot Fai), and Lumpini Park being shortlisted so far.

Bangkok Governor Chadchart Sittipunt envisions the establishment of farmers’ markets in all 50 districts of the city. This initiative would allow local farmers to sell their products directly to consumers, eliminating the need for intermediary agents. At present, 45 district offices and organizations responsible for 12 public parks have agreed to participate in this valuable initiative, paving the way for an eco-friendly and sustainable future in Bangkok.
