Villa Market’s founder and president, Khun Surapong Poosanakhom, first experienced the role that imported products could play in enhancing people’s lives when he was working with the US Commissary in Bangkok during the Vietnam War. The end of the war was an uncertain time for Thailand, as many people were concerned what the future held. Khun Surapong was certain that his future lay in providing the people of Thailand with access to the best local and international food products available.
It was in 1974 that Villa Market – a “World of Foods”, was born, with it’s original store, on Sukhumvit Road just after Soi 33, and it is still operating to this day. This store never closes and remains Villa Market’s only 24 hour trading store. Villa Market has grown significantly and now has 33 stores nationwide – ranging from Phuket, Hua Hin and Pattaya in the South to Udon Thani in the North, and all across Bangkok.
The latest addition to the Villa Market family is the new Sukhumvit Soi 11 store which packs all of the international favourites found in their other stores along with the best fresh food in town. Villa Market spends a lot of time scouring the world for the best available products to bring back to Thailand for their customers. Their buying teams spend a lot of time travelling to meet suppliers and producers in orderto provide their customers with “Products from Home”.
Villa Market has nearly 3,000 products in their range that are not available anywhere else in Thailand and they pride themselves on being able to source products from far and wide. The current Villa Market exclusive ranges include Iceland (UK) and Monoprix (France). When you visit a Villa Market store you are sure to discover products that you didn’t know they had. If there’s a product you would like to see available in Villa Market then simply send them an email telling them all about it – [email protected]
Fresh food is an integral part of any Villa Market store. They offer products flown in fresh from around the world as well direct from local farms. The Villa Market Super Steak and Best Buy fresh beef ranges have been selected by Khun Surapong to represent all that Villa Market strives to be – good value and excellent quality. They include a mix of overseas and local beef in order to provide something for everyone.
