The name 100-Year Old Market is a generic that refers to any old-fashioned market, often as here with wooden shop houses, that have retained their authentic Thai character from a century ago.

 

This riverside market is famous for its unique giant look chin (fig.), a kind of Thai-style meat ball, made of a mixture of wheat flour, tapioca flour, salt and any kind of finely pulverized meat.
