The best for me, is what is close by. I go to Chiang Mai gate market, did that this morning at 630, then stopped at the market with no name ... I bet it has one - . That on Suriyawongse a kilometer south from Chiang Mai Gate.

 

I don't think they have 'organic'. However if that is what you want, they will tell you they do, & with a smile. They aim to please. :thumbsup:

Muang mai wholesale market,near US embassy on Ping River

is the biggest veg and fruit market in Chiang mai,organic I don't

think so ,but the prices are a fraction of what you would pay

at Supermarket,but you have to buy in 5-10 Kg bags for the 

likes of potatoes and onions,other veg you can buy in smaller

quantities.

No, in Belgium  

  • Netherlands: US$74.3 million (40.9% of total Brussels sprouts exports)
  • Mexico: $52.6 million (28.9%)
  • United States: $23.2 million (12.8%)
  • Belgium: $9.5 million (5.2%)
  • Canada: $3.7 million (2%)

 

So no, the ones you get at Rimping or Makro are likely not from Belgium, let alone Thailand. That said I like Brussel sprouts.

I went to the annual Poke Salad festival in Gainesville, TN one year.  Truly awesome was the wheeled privy race. One one the pot, the other pushing.

Makro... ok, I hadn't thought of that but it is quite a helpful tip actually... Thanks.

I feel  ... very ignorant today. I didn't know, and now it is cancelled. I did know about the artichoke festival  ... ..
THE 60TH ANNUAL CASTROVILLE ARTICHOKE FOOD & WINE FESTIVAL

I was at Hang Dong Makro this morning. They are in the frozen veg section. I have also seen them at Tops, Central Airport plaza. As usual this being LOS, if they are sold out or pulled it can be a week or more before they magically reappear.

Where were the frozen ones at makro from?  Can be great if not overcooked.
