Several times a day, shopkeepers swiftly pack up their food stalls and pull back their canopies to let the trains pass. Once the trains have rumbled through, the crates of vegetables, fish and eggs, are heaved back into their position along the tracks and shoppers return to the tracks they use as a path through the market. Every day hundreds of tourists armed with cameras flock to the picturesque Maeklong market to witness the well-oiled routine.
