The central market in the district and a thriving hub for trade in Ho Chi Minh, Binh Tay Market pulsates with authentic everyday market life. Sprawling across street after street, hosting some 600 stalls in both the outdoor and indoor areas, the market jumps to life at the break of dawn, winding down around mid-morning. Awaken your senses with a walk around the maze of fresh produce, hot food, and handicrafts, immersing yourself in the market’s culture of bargain-hunting and haggling. Primarily a wholesale market, prices get cheaper the more you buy.

  • A big area - many stalls but with similar goods - mostly clothing but some shoes and bags. Quite large food stall and product area. Look for quality cotton and silk items at some stalls. BARGAIN!

  • This is based on the fruit vendors outside the markets. I was super impressed by how Kind people are, I give them 10.000 or 20,000 dong to get 1 pcs of fruit, but they fill up the quantities to the price or give money back for the difference. I had the most delicious jack fruit & other exotic fruit in this market. I was very touched by kindness of people. They might not have a lot of money but honest & kind people. I will always remember them❤️
  • Finally reopen. Food is there but not like before. Typical market. Good but many just like it around
