A veggie market, Maeklong Market is in Samut Songkhram, Thailand, around 37 miles west of Bangkok.

Every day people sell locally grown fruits such as lychee, durian, and mango, dried spices, and peppers, and other local foods.

But then, eight times a day, a piercing siren sounds and in a flash the market transforms - the shoppers disappear and the stallholders whip away their produce.
It is such a tight squeeze that the train - appearing to travel at about 15mph - touches the fruits, vegetables and everything else at the marketplace as it passes through.
Once the No.4382 commuter train from Mae Klong to Ban Laem has gone, everything goes back to normal - as if nothing happened.

Here is a short YouTube video of this market:
