At first glance, the Maeklong Market in Thailand is just like any other farmer's market, where vendors sell their vegetables, fruits and other organic food items.
The unique part about this particular market, though, is that the vendor's displays must be more mobile than most, as they must make way for passing trains several times every day.
As shown in the video, the quick in-and-out movements are quite reminiscent of street hockey games, where kids move their goalie nets to the roadside as soon as a player yells "CAR!"
