Unlike the floating market at  Damnoen Saduak, Amphawa starts late, so it's a great place to come for an afternoon or evening meal.  This is more of your traditional food market - people paddling their canal boats along the bank with ingredients to make up whatever they can, so things are fresh and frequently delicious.  There are less of the tourist sort of guff that you find at Damnoen Saduak as well, and more authentic bits and bobs, but it's mostly about the food and appreciating the way the vendors are able to cook and serve it so quickly - and in some cases how they manage to get it to you on the banks.  

On the canal near Wat Amphawan Chetiyaram, the market runs between 12.00 p.m. – 8.00 p.m., on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
