Building upon its “Local Vendors Support Centre” project, Laguna Phuket is launching “Laguna Market on First” to establish another venue for local vendors as well as offer the resort’s guests, the local Thai, and the expat communities a place to shop for Phuket’s goods.

The first edition on Sunday, 1st February, will include an opening ceremony on the main stage featuring product highlights from the Market, kids’ performances, and mini-concerts by popular Thai artist “Jennifer Kim,” who was one of The Voice Thailand’s coaches and judges bringing along last season’s winner “Noom The Voice.”
