The Global Affairs and Corporate Communication Center established "PSU Bazaar" during COVID-19 challenging times to provide members to showcase and sell their products online. It offers a diverse range of goods and services, including food, clothing, plants, pets, and various other services. It was popular and gain recognition from members and service users. As the situation gradually improved and restrictions eased, there was an idea to organize “PSU Bazaar on Ground”. Thus, the first event was unfolded in March 2021 under the name "PSU Bazaar Learning Market Place" at Central Hat Yai. The second event took place in June 2023, at the yard, across from the Faculty of Management Science, named "Music Food fest @PSU in the garden." Most recently, it was the third event with over 5,000 participants attending, generating an income approximately 400,000 baht over the course of two days.
