Update: 25 July 2020
JJ Green Night Market is now back as “JJ Green 2” but at a new location. The journey by car from the old to new location takes about 20-30 minutes, so if you are heading there, we advice you to use Grab simply because it is new and many taxi drivers will not know the location. Their new location is at Soi Prachachuen 10, near Dhurakij Pundit University. Please note that JJ Green 2 is not open daily but only from Thursday to Sunday, 6pm – 12am.
JJ Green 2 is bigger than before, with more than 120 shops consisting of fashion and food. They are divided into different zones and we took these photos from their “elevated viewpoint” so that you can have a better picture of what to expect.
The zone where you first enter is mainly consisting of shopping and girls will surely spend more time here. There are some drinks and desserts available but if you are into food, hold your horses and head to the zones at the back.
On the other side, the zones are more focused on food and there are really lots of choices. Let me show you some shops which caught my attention during the hour-long discovery.
Beautiful and cute chocolates.
Flaming Grilled Chicken.
I get happy when I see this uncle because he used to be at Hua Mum Night Market and it is a must for me to patronise his shop because I love his Thai kueh called “Khanom Krok Baitoey” or some Thais call it “Khanom Krok Singapore”. The irony is, we don’t find this in Singapore at all! (check out our video of them above)
This is one of the most popular shops here selling “Khanom Tokiao” or some call it “Khanom Tokyo”. It is a common Thai street food savoury/sweet pancake. We see long queues because this shop is special – they sell a mega/huge version with different topping options such as basil pork and pizza which is unusual. (check out our video of them above)
Khanom Babin, a popular Thai dessert from Ayutthaya made from young coconut, rice flour, coconut milk, sugar and egg.
Mini Pancakes was cute and delicious. (check out our video of them above)
This shop had quite a number of locals eating and I was curious to try it too. It happened to be a small portion of simple 25 baht Pad Krapow which tasted delicious. The portion was just nice as it allowed us to try more food in the market later.
Wash everything down with this delicious thirst-quenching Honey Lime Soda.
There are also healthier drink options too.
Time now for shopping! We shall let the photos do the talking.
Update: 22 August 2018
JJ Green Night Market in Chatuchak will shut at the end of this month (August).
The area will be redeveloped as part of a mega public park, under the name “Utthayan Suan Chatuchak”. It merges 3 city parks – Queen Sirikit Park, Chatuchak Park and Rot Fai Park. When completed, it will be the largest public park in Bangkok covering 727 rai.
Jatuchak (JJ) Green is one of the latest Weekend Night Markets to open last year in 2014. Located just behind Jatuchak Park, it’s also near the former Talad Rot Fai before they shifted over to Srinakarin Road.
The vibe is very similar to Talad Rot Fai since they also sell vintage stuff but it’s very much smaller in size. Now with JJ Green Vintage Night Market, you can basically spend half of your day in Chatuchak area. In the afternoon you can go to Chatuchak Weekend Market and in the evening, JJ Green. That is only if you have the stamina to do so.
JJ Green Vintage Night Market is located at Kamphaeng Phet 3 Road, behind Jatujak park. JJ Green actually is a lifestyle community mall which opens from 10am – 10pm daily. I did not visit during the day and won’t be able to update you on it. But if you want the best experience, visit from Wed to Sun from 6pm to 1:30am.
In JJ Green, there are several sections, namely the community mall, flea market at parking lot area and dining section. I shall let the pictures do the rest of the “talking”.
The flea market is where you will find most people gathering and shopping as there’s unique and interesting stuff here!
Dining / Chill
Feeling hungry or looking for a spot to just chill out with friends over some drinks? JJ Green is a good choice as there are food courts and also interesting bars around.
