Celery - Not the Chinese Type.

Recommended Posts

Anyone in the Chiang Mai or Lamphun area know where I can buy some ordinary Celery? Not the thin spindley Chinese stuff, the real western type big bunch with leaves type? I know that I can get it from Tesco Hang Dong, it is the Royal Project brand. I also know that I CANNOT get it at the Big C Branch at Hang Dong / San Patong. Teco Express Thung Sieow does not sell it either. 7/11 sells nothing like this asnyway so it is a waste of time trying them.

 

I was wondering about the Tesco at Pasang and also the Tesco at both Baan Hong and Chom Thong. There surely must be other outlets around this area for the Royal Project veggies, how about the Supermarkets at Kaad Farang, Rimping?

 

Anyone know of any local markets that sell it, or if maybe some of the Tesco's from out of town sell it as I really do not want to have to drive a 90km round trip to get some. (I actually do not mind doing a road trip out towards the SW, just not heading toward the City, anywhere Lamphun side or on the Chom Thong roads is fine.

 

Thanks in advance

My celery is not that good - it's only 5,000 Yuan per month.

Looks like I'll have to, even though there's very little chance of any overtime with it.

Rimping at Meechoke Plaza and at Narawat location has it frequently. (Probably also at Promenada location.) I think it comes from Australia. Also have seen it at Tops market at Central Festival. Pricey.

Sizzler all you can eat and free if you bring a box to hide under the table (so I'm told) 🤔

I think most females do this by default.

All those choices, Rimping, Sizzler etc. are in the wrong direction for me. Besides, Rimping imported veggies are often terrible, overpriced and inedible - Australian Parsnips, 180 B$ / KG, tiny little whizzened junk, enough wood in them to build a log cabin, and about as much taste. No, the celery I want is grown in Thailand and is sold under the Royal Project brand. Just seems not many places stock it, maybe it all goes to Bangkok?

I might at a push, but again, it is 40km in the wrong direction for me.

I've bought the celery at Rimping when they have it. Excellent quality, but again, pricey.

Good luck -I find celery at Rimping or Tops but the price is high.

 

Whenever I pass by a salad bar I always check to see if they've got some loose sticks.

 

Celery's indispensable for tuna salad IMO.  Minced are carrots are ok but not the same.

 

                                       I wonder if they might know?

Are you sure you're not a doctor?

The home grown Thai celery is fine, it comes in about an 800g pack and only costs about 65 B$
