Road-trip Regional Produce: Coconuts


Along the highway north to Bangkok, all the regions feature stalls, selling whatever regional produce is famous for that area. You'll often see long strips of stalls, all selling the same type of farm, produce, whether it be bananas, guava, pineapples or as in this case, coconuts.

Since it's a long drive, I've stopping at each and exploring these stalls, to look for gifts and taste the local goods on offer.

The coconuts for this area are available as fresh young coconut, toasted coconut, and the one I'm buying which is coconut jelly, made with agar-agar to set the coconut water mixed with the shredded coconut flesh to make a double coconutty treat!


The traffic can rush by, but I'm enjoying my cold coconut jelly. With several stalls all selling the same themed produce, all grouped together, if you drive past one, you'll see another shortly afterwards, so no need to turn around. They're on both sides of the road too.

You can find these coconut stalls at the location below. Be sure to try out the local produce as you travel this journey.
