The wholesale market of Udon Thani

From time to time we just stroll through the wholesale market in Udon Thani and surprise ourselves with the variety and quantity of goods being offered there.  We took the photos for this article early in the afternoon whilst trying not get too much in the way. Many stalls and traders had sold most of their stock in the morning but there was still plenty of suitable subjects for the camera to record.

The largest part of the wholesale market, which is divided into many halls, open air stalls and parking places.
