If you are coming to Phuket on a tight budget, Banzaan Fresh Market is worth trying.
It’s located 10 minutes from Patong Beach, right in front of Patong Boxing Stadium.
And It has everything you need, from seafood and meat to fruits and vegetables.
Plus, there is a cooking service on the second floor where you can enjoy a very delicious meal.
So, you buy your seafood on the first floor and then give it to the kitchen on the second floor, which cooks it for you.
Sounds cool, huh?
What to buy at Banzaan Fresh Market?
Banzaan market is packed with all the fresh food you can ever imagine.
Starting from seafood, including lobster, crab, shrimp, fish, oysters, etc.
And meat, including chicken, beef, and pork.
The fruits and vegetables are fresh and organic and have the exact childhood flavors.
Apart from all that, Banzaan Fresh Market has a special section for herbs from all around Asia.
And that seems to be the best part if you are like me and prefer to cook at home.
Best time to go to Banzaan Market
Although some people like to go during busy hours, I prefer to go when a few people are around.
It feels much better, and you will likely get better prices at those hours.
This time would be around 10:30 am to 12:00 pm.
If you get there at those hours, you will enjoy your time and buy more food at much cheaper prices.
How to Get more for less at the market?
The magic word is BARGAIN; You must bargain to get better prices, and you will get some fantastic prices if you are patient enough.
The sellers at Banzaan Market are hungry to sell as fast as possible.
So, be patient and have fun with the bargain game.
No matter what you buy, whether it’s meat, seafood, or veggies, you can always negotiate cheaper prices.

Banzaan Cooking Service
As I have just mentioned above, there is a cooking service at Banzaan Fresh Market where you can give them the food you purchased and they cook it for you.
It’s located in the second floor and it looks like a beautiful vintage cafe with many different kitchens ready to cook your food.
So if you happen to be hungry while at the market, get yourself some shrimp, fish, or lobster and go to the second floor to enjoy a very filling lunch.
It’s much better than many restaurants in Phuket.
