People Here Shop for Fresh Veggies While Dodging Death 8 Times a Day

In a town just outside of Bangkok, Thailand, a peculiar market exists at the center of town.

This market sits on a railroad. It’s called the Maeklong Railway Market. Trains barrel through 8 times a day.

The shop owners all know exactly when it’s time to step to the side and pull the shop in with them. They have the distance needed to escape danger down to a science. Some of the veggies sit right under the train’s path, as if almost touching. But after the train rolls through, they remain intact.

I wonder what happens to clueless tourists who go there, shopping unaware of train timetables. Would the locals yank them aside?

In any case, this sure adds excitement to those times when you just need to eat something fresh.
