Sunday mornings offer many tasty Thai food stalls, a small Thai vegetable market, and lots of home grown orchids for sale. Very informal, very friendly folks. Adjacent Buddhist temple is open to the public.

I did find this schedule. It appears that they do have a ceremony, so I don't think they are open as usual as this appears to be a ceremony for the monks. Perhaps you can call and check. I found this on their website. I hope... More
