Bustling scene at a market for street vendors in Saigon

A market for street vendors has been put into operation for over one year at Pham Van Hai Market in HCMC’s Tan Binh District.
Some 20 households have been approved by local authorities to run business at the market at night time, which helps reduce encroachment on public pavements by street vendors.

It is expected that more spaces will be set up at other districts in HCMC to help street vendors run business.
