This market is not the same as other markets, there is the train run through the middle of the market. The vendors will know the time when the train run through the middle of the market. They would have to preserve the products or goods, folding the umbrellas and store awnings to avoid the train. After the train passed, it s like a magic because the vendors immediately, put the awnings back into their original places as if nothing extraordinary had ever happened. That is why the market is locally known as the Talad Rom Hub which translates into The Folding Umbrella Market.
