Exploring Wororot Market, Chiang Mai

I simply love visiting markets but Ron find that part of me a little weird. Nevertheless he'll always tag along claiming I need a bodyguard (even though that may not necessarily be true). I can sometimes see the tortured look on his face whenever we walked through the stinking section selling fish, salted fish  and other pungent foodstuff. For that I really appreciate the sacrifice he puts in. During this short trip to Chiang Mai, I visited The Sunday Night Market, Anusarn Market and Wororot Market. If I'd spent more days in Chiang Mai I think I would probably cover 'all' the markets in Chiang Mai.
Wororot Market or Kad Luang as it is locally called is the main market in Chiang Mai. I didn't have any particular thing in mind to buy but if I could get roasted lotus seeds to bring home I'd be more than happy. Let's take a virtual walk to see some of the things in Wororot.

I walked a few rounds but could not find the lotus seed snacks that I mentioned.

The flower section faces the Ping River. There are many more things available and sold here but are not shown in this post.
