Ortorkor Market Soi 51

This place opens this Friday, 25th May @ 11am. It looks like another giant (covered, this time) food court. This one is situated next door to the mini-bus station on Soi 51.

My wife reading the signage says it's a 'farmers market'. But you never know!

The reason I said, "It looks like another giant (covered, this time) food court," is due to the vast numbers of tables and chairs situated beside each outlet. Here's a photo from inside:

I wonder how long before the minibuses moved to Soi 51 it was made public that they were going to do so.
Quite a while, I should think as the old Dole Social club was demolished to make way for it and there is a much smaller collection of snacky food places opposite the site that have been open for a while. That Hop Inn hotel also suddenly appeared and that seems to cater for the more cost conscious, possibly travelers, at 800 THB a night. A friend used it for a couple of nights earlier this year and said it was adequate.

I agree, BB. Certainly looks like a food court to me.

They put this poster up in our soi. Among other things they say they're giving orchids away. Also music on stage every day. OrTorKor (แตก) is the agricultural markets organisation.
