Krabi Market Curry Paste

Curry Paste for Sale

Fresh curry paste outside Krabi Market

In Thailand, you can find fresh made curry pastes such as in this photo in nearly any market. Here in the United States when we make curry, we generally are limited to pre-made curry pastes, such as Mae Ploy brand, when making Thai curries. The front paste in the photo is used to make Gaeng Som, a fiery hot southern curry.

This picture was actually taken on a street just outside the lively, fresh market in Krabi, Thailand. We’ve blogged previously on the Krabi Morning Market. We’ve also had a previous Wednesday photo of a curry paste vendor in Nakhon Si Thammarat.

Michael took this picture on Kasma’s recent trip to Southern Thailand.

Nakhon Si Thammarat Vendors

The markets of Thailand are filled with colorful, delicious looking ingredients and finished food. By far the best part of the markets are the vendors themselves. These two young women are selling curry pastes at the Sunday market in Nakhan Si Thammarat, in southern Thailand. It’s a lively and extensive market and well worth a visit. We go and graze our way through the market – there’s plenty of prepared food as well as ingredients for any Thai dish you could imagine.

We have more market pictures on the website. If you’re in Nakhon Si Thammarat, try Krua Nakhon for breakfast!
