Phosy Market is Luang Prabang’s main market for locals.
A short tuk tuk ride from the centre of town, it’s well worth a visit especially to enjoy the fresh produce section and is often included in cooking classes. Tamarind Restaurant sells an inexpensive ‘What’ at the Market?’ booklet that’s worth investing in.
It’s also a good spot to explore Luang Prabang’s specialty foods….
….buffalo skin for boiling and dipping or adding to stews and fried mushroom and bamboo shoots, coconut biscuits, sweet chilli dip
fermented fish sauce
