Sunday morning saw the first community-themed Chill Chill Morning Market at Canal Village organised by Laguna Phuket in adherence to regulations and safe distancing protocols of the local authorities. Locals and Laguna associates were able to sell a variety of their own homemade food and beverages, handicrafts and fresh local produce to the neighbourhood residents and visitors.
Set at the scenic shaded walkway fringing the lagoon between at Canal Village and Angsana Wedding Chapel, the event welcomed 500 Thai visitors and Laguna Phuket residents. With nearly 70 stalls including Angsana and Cassia hotel food booths, the guests enjoyed purchases of homemade delicacies and local produce along with complimentary aerobic classes and family lagoon ferry rides.
