MARKETS DA NANG

"Went here with the kids today. They were fascinated with the ladies skinning frogs. This may seem disgusting but it's real life in Vietnam and we show our kids real experiences. Lots of stuff to look at. Very safe at the Han market. Then we had lunch at one of the stalls there. Had bun cha, coffee, kids had mango smoothies, rice and chicken. If the stall you're sitting at doesn't have what you want they'll run round and find it for you. Great experience!!"


Con Market

          The Con Market and the Han Market - are two markets in the center of Da Nang.

At the Con Market you'll find more than you more than 2,000 stalls selling a range of craft items, clothing and accessories at low prices. In the 40s of the last century the market was the center for farmers and fishermen from the surrounding areas, such as Que Son, Dai Loc, and Thang Binh. On the market one could go for vegetables, fish and poultry.

 


In 1984, a renovation took place and the market moved to the Ong Ich Kiem Street. The building has got now three floors. You can get fresh produce, dry goods, coffee and there are lots of other stalls located on the ground floor.

The upper floor houses workmen with trades and t-shirt sales. People here also offers all kinds of services tailored: tours, transportation and other sevices.
The goods on the Con Market offered significantly cheaper than elsewhere in the markets in Vietnam. But .... you can still negotiate here about the price. It is advisable to start under the asking price 50% to 70%.
There is also a wide range of cheap and authentic Vietnamese dishes for sale, including the banh mi (baguette in Vietnamese style), goi cuon (spring rolls), Banh Xeo (crispy pancake), and mi Quang (Vietnam turmeric noodles).
The market is open daily from 08:00. The market is mainly frequented by locals, especially in the evening and on holidays, such as the Tet Festival.

 

The Han market is popular with both locals and tourists. The market is located on the main intersection of Tran Phu Street, Bach Dang Street, Hung Vuong Street, Tran Hung Dao Street. This famous market has a very important position in the history of the city.
It was a modest market, where the locals came together, but it evolved because it was in the Han River. Hence the name Han Market. The market was officially opened in 1940.


Han Market

A number of Chinese and Vietnamese businessmen decided to build a commercial center around the market with supermarkets, jewelers, pharmacy stores, etc. In 1989, the market has been completely renovated. Today the market has two floors and a spacious, airy atmosphere. The decor of the shops in the market gives the customers feel relaxed when they shop.
Interesting is, that the locals regarded the market as "rich market" because it was very popular among the wealthier class of society. That is now no longer the case. Now everyone enjoys shopping at Han Market. There are plenty of products ranging from fresh foods (vegetables, fruits, fish and meat) to clothing.
The Han Market also attracts many people because of its relatively low prices. It functions as the center, where goods are traded before they are distributed to smaller markets in the province.
 

 

The Han market is ideal for those who are looking for souvenirs. Some specialties, which you can find on the Han market are: Ly Son garlic, chilli, dried rice crackers, dried squid. At the front of the market, fruit stalls, plentiful with a choice of tropical bananas and jackfruits.


Eating at the Con Market

From a travelogue:

"Con market is one of the largest markets in Da Nang. The market covers a full city block and the sheer variety here is the draw for the most visitor such as sacks of dried shrimp and fruit, displays of cosmetics, leatherwork and woodwork, baby clothes and so on.
I had a great day at Con market and I was very impressed with the food area of Con market. I've tasted the food here.The foods are very delicious. Besides, people are very friendly and hospitable. Da Nang is the ideal choice for those who want to have interesting experiences. I hope that I can come back here soon."
