Travel Writers’ Guide: 110 Street Markets Around the World

Dr. Jessie Voigts's picture

Mouthwatering smells, crispy crackling food cooking, small stools (or no chairs), handmade crafts, clothing, textiles, insects on sticks, metalwork, teddy bears, raw meat, ripe vegetables, colorful flowers, a world of cheese…where are you? At any of the street markets I’ve gathered for you here. You see, I LOVE street markets (and I mean LOVE). So much so, that I’ve asked many of my travel writer friends for their best street market recommendations (and photos), to share with our wandering educators. They love them…so much that I was overwhelmed with a great desire to go, travel, eat! I have a feeling you will, too…

Let’s take a trip around the world, discovering over 100 of the planet’s best street markets.

Travel Writers’ Guide: 110 Street Markets Around the World

Photo courtesy and copyright Talon Windwalker, 1dad1kid.com, adapted by Wandering Educators with thanks!

First, my favorite websites (in alphabetical order) that share a plethora of articles on street markets (because, really, if we broke them all out, the articles from these sites would equal the rest of the list):

David Levobitz

Dropout Diaries (also run the fabulously delicious Saigon Street Eats)

Everywhereist

The Longest Way Home (and read our interview here)

Migrationology (and read our interview here)

Pure visual interest and hunger-inducing photos at my pinterest board on Street Markets Around the World
