Bangkok markets

Can someone tell me the approximate hours the various markets are open? We'll be in Bangkok on a Saturday and Sunday. I'm interested in the weekend and night markets. Thanks!

Also keep in mind that if you are walking down Sukhumvit or Silom or Patpong area, you are going to find stall after stall every night with all kinds of things for sale, right on the sidewalk. ALL neighborhoods in BKK have many many street vendors that are set up at night. You don't have to seek out a special market like SuanLum if you don't want to. But SuanLum is a fun place to shop!! And it's nicely arranged and fairly easy to manage.
