Coffee stall in Chiang Mai
The idea comes originally from Vietnam.
There, local people offer freshly prepared tea on markets for a donation. The tea-maker is brewing the tea. The guests sit on small chairs around tea maker while holding tea-cups in their hands. When the tea is ready, the tea-maker will offer the tea to the people, who sit around him. Once the guests had enough tea, they will give their donations into a box. It’s a great opportunity to have a break, to socialize and to refresh yourself.
I found similar settings on some farmer markets in Thailand. However, instead of tea – coffee had been served.

Around the city are many farmers markets and also start to be the big trend for “Organic coffee and food” One of the most known is the market on Atsadathon Rd..also called Jing Jai farmer’s market (Facebook: @FarmersMarketChiangmai). Open on Saturday and Sunday from 7 am – 1 pm. On the market, you can get an amazing breakfast. When at one place you can find many coffee and juice stands. Also, plenty of stands with various food and fresh fruits & vegetable. With all these on the background is playing live music. Mainly on Sunday is the market much busier and with many handcrafts stand.
