JJ Green: Thailand’s Cool, Quirky & Offbeat Night Market

Night markets are common not just in Thailand but throughout most of Asia. However they all tend to have the same kind of souvenirs, local handicrafts, and traditional foods. Same same but different, as they say. Until I found Jatujak Green ‐ more commonly known as JJ Green night market ‐ the best place in Bangkok to go for souvenir shopping because of the truly unique items for sale there.

  And for all you Pinners ๐Ÿ˜‰

Exploring the one-of-a-kind JJ Green Night Market in Bangkok, the most unique, offbeat and quirky market in all of Thailand! #travel #thailand #asia #shopping #exploremore #offbeat

Welcome to JJ Green Night Market

JJ Green Night Market in Bangkok

JJ Green night market is the laidback, quirky, bohemian little sister of the massive Chatuchak Weekend Market just down the road. Nestled on all four sides by green parks, JJ Green is as much a social hangout for grabbing beers with friends as it is for vintage shopping. From antique cameras to modern drones, cacti to spare muffler parts, retro video game systems to every type of jewelry and fashion accessory you can think of….it is all here at Jatujak Green. But it isn’t just vendors — there are even several bars and live music venues in the mix!

  This food stand had more than a dozen different fried snacks. Onions, potatoes, various types of mushrooms, flowers and plant leaves….so much stuff! Pick your size cup, pack it full with whatever you want to eat, grab a couple of large wooden toothpicks to keep your hands clean and voila, you’ve got a meal on the go!

Take the green Sukhumvit Line north to the final station, Mo Chit, and exit there. JJ Green is located inside of Chatuchak Park. You can either cut through the park or walk around it then up Kamphaeng Phet Road. Look for the large JJ Green sign (pictured above).
