The market is not too large, but the shops are located close together, selling all kinds of dishes from salty, vegetarian to sweet, and dessert.

According to an old lady who sells old tea at Co Dao market, from the time the French colonized this area was the residence of a great father. Because many people brought vegetables and fruits to sell, a small market was gradually formed, called Co Dao market by word of mouth. Since then, the market has continued to operate and maintained more and more bustle.

” In the past, there were only people who sold snacks such as corn cakes, banana cakes, tapioca cakes, boiled potatoes, black bean tea, … But in the last decade, the market has exploded with many new dishes, many items for sale. In the morning, the market will sell fresh vegetables, fruits, and fish meat. The food shops will also start to open gradually and then meet until about 7:00 pm will close , “the old lady added.
