JJ Green Night Market or Jatujak Night Market is located next to Chatuchak. This is not the original Chatuchak Night Market. It is a ‘medium size’ night market selling vintage items, flea items, fashion and food.

The uniqueness of this market is you can find vintage items like flea market. Since the night market is not that huge, you probably take less than an hour to venture the whole area. There are quite a number of food stalls and restaurants in JJ Green Market.

We found this night market by luck when the taxi driver dropped us to the wrong market and this is probably one of the best night markets ever in Bangkok.

The night market is located outside of Palladium World Shopping Centre opposite Platinum Shopping Mall and Amari Watergate Hotel. They are located at the same street of Centara Watergate Pavilion Hotel in Pratunam.
Unlike other night markets, the Palladium Night Market stalls offer many DIY products. You can personalised your own bags or clothes with unique letterings and cute icons. We personalised a few clothes for our boys too.
The stalls offer many accessories on top of fashion and we really like their DIY personalised products. It is really good for souvenirs and as usual the prices are very affordable.
