Description
Tha Kha Floating Market is a market that opens on waxing days, which are on the 2nd, 7th, and 12th waxing moon and 2nd, 7th, and 12th waning moon respectively. Tha Kha Floating Market opens from around 06.00 am. – 15.00 pm. At present, Tha Kha Floating Market opens every Saturday and Sunday, starting to open every Saturday and Sunday for 5 years. The merchants will ride the boat, which contains fruits, vegetables, or various foods through the canal and park at Tha Kha Floating Market. If it is on a waxing or waning day, the merchants will completely fill the canal for the villagers to buy products from the plantation. However, if it is a Saturday or Sunday that is not on a waxing or waning moon, the number of merchants will reduce since the water level in the canal will be reduced in the late morning, which makes it hard to travel and they need to sell hastily and row back. Tha Kha Floating Market is like a central place to meet people in the community and tourists. Around the market, there is a proportionately wooden arch for tourists to buy food to eat. There is a waterfront passage way near the market for tourists to select products. The prominent point of the market is the wooden bridge to cross the canal that many tourists walk up to take wide angle pictures of the floating market. The tourist welcome center of the farm women group is located at the front of the Tha Kha Floating Market.

History
Tha Kha Floating Market is located in Tha Kha Sub-District, Amphawa District, Samut Sakhon Province. Tha Kha Floating Market is more than 100 years old. The lifestyle of villagers is related to the rivers. They use boats as the main transportation to meet and visit people around the area. Tha Kha Market will open up for trading with the tide. The villagers will bring their products to show on waxing or waning day of the 2nd, 7th, and 12th. The reason for setting up the trading day in this way is because there was no calendar in the past so they did not know when to go for trading and depended on the tide of water as a trading determinant. The villagers will paddle to bring vegetables, fruit, shrimps, shells, crabs, coconut sugar, and dried seafood to sell at Tha Kha Floating Market. At present, though land transportation is more convenient, villagers in that area still use boat transportation for trading, exchanging goods, or meeting.
