Phuket weekend market (locally known as Naka Market), located along Chao Fa West Road just outside Phuket Town not far from Central Festival, is a fascinating jumble of secondhand goods, curios, pirated items, live animals and a large amount of great local food to sample. It really is worth a visit even if you're not planning on buying anything. If you were to ask, "What's for sale here?" The answer would probably be, "How much time do you have?" as the list of goods is endless.

We loved the markets. Food was good. It's a one off place to visit though. We went. We saw. Lol. Awesome little bar in the middle that we sat at waiting for our driver.

Best advice go around 4.30/5.00pm it gets really crowded and is very hot. Lots of great local food to try, even fried bugs! Found things to be a lot cheaper then Patong, very similar items, tshirts, runners, makeup, clothes!! Well worth a visit.

Good selection of local food and some other less common foods like western cakes/sushi. Shopping section is not bad too. Value for Money and Clean! Can spend about 2-3 hours there

Take a Tuk Tuk to the market, they'll drop you off at the right place. It's too far to go on foot from Phuket to the market.
