Kasetsart University - Kaset Fair

Yesterday afternoon I made the journey out to Kasetsart University to explore the Kaset Fair, a gigantic sprawling outdoor bazaar.

It was so ridiculously large that it may have actually been too large – we were there from 2 pm until 7 pm (when it started closing) and still weren’t able to cover the entire market!

Today I wanted to quickly share some photos from the event.

Mounds of garlic!

There was entire section just dedicated to garlic! Awesome!

Fresh strawberry yoghurt

The first thing we enjoyed was a cup of fresh yoghurt topped with strawberries.

Maybe it’s that I barely ever eat yoghurt anymore these days, but it tasted phenomenally wonderful – slightly sour and nice and creamy.

Pet dogs for sale

The Kaset Fair had a large section of pets for sale, dogs being the most popular.

Gac Fruit

Fuk Khao, or Gac Fruit, was on display a number times. I’ve been a fan of the fruit and the delicious juice for while now. The super-health juice tastes kind of like a cross between a tomato and a ripe papaya.

Relieving yourself is one of the best feelings in the world!

At any Thai fair or bazaar you’re bound to stumble into a few funny things – like this little boy peeing!

Bananas!

One of the largest sections of the Kaset Fair was dedicated to the selling of potted fruit trees.

A banana the size of my forearm

In order to push along the sales of potted fruit trees, vendors also included the most impressive fruits from their trees on display (fruit not for sale). I guess it was an effort to show that you could grow that kind of fruit!

This banana was literally the size of my forearm, if not longer.

Perfect jackfruits

Jackfruits were gigantic and flawless in shape.

Deep fried champada

I was excited to see chambada, a fruit similar to jackfruit and available only in southern Thailand. We bought some deep fried chambada which were coated in coconut batter.

Along with endless snacks, Thai meat lover’s treats like fried pork and pork belly were widely available throughout the Kaset Fair.

My beautiful Africa shaped piece of grilled chicken

When I spotted this Africa shaped piece of grilled chicken, there was no way I was going to resist.

I started eating West Africa first!

It was indeed extremely satisfying!

A great, relaxing meal, to round off the day.

Finally after a few hours of hectic walking around, we took a rest and enjoyed a fantastic meal of miang pla pao, yam ruam mit, and a side of som tam!
