Chiang Mai: Food at the market

While visiting the market I noticed the sheer choice of prepared foods – even though it was a small market, you could choose from lots of different ingredients and snacks. For instance, here are some bags with dried fruits and nuts.

The peanuts with lime and chili are Monica’s favourite – and I believe, soon Patrick’s too.

Here are some dried fish, waiting to be bought and added to a meal. I don’t really know if you can eat them as they are being sold, or if you use them as an ingredient for a recipe, but either way they look really nice (and don’t smell too strong).

Lots of curry paste is also being sold at the market, for red, green and yellow curries:

Of course, if you are hungry and just want a snack, you can just purchase one of the spicy sausages…

… some fried vegetables…

… or even some fried chicken heads. Tasty, eh?!

Funnily enough, there were lots of firecrackers being sold at the market too. I assume that’s just because of the festival of the light, that was happening at the same time – I doubt that they will be sold every normal day.
