Perhaps the oldest shop at Nang Leong Market is Mae Som Jit, which occupies a corner shop kitty-corner to the market square. It opened 107 years ago, before the market did, and is now run by the third generation. Mae Som Jit makes and sells kanom (sweets), kanom, and more kanom. Among its prettiest offerings is this coconut milk khao niao (sticky rice) six-pack, which includes dainty sticky rice squares encased in banana leaf and topped with sweet shredded fish and dried shrimp, caramelized shallots, two different types of custard, and grated fresh coconut.
When it comes to markets, I'm pretty much like a fat kid and cake..I just can't seem to stay away.
