The weather was extremely hot which made the shopping experience difficult. Also, the vendors are very aggressive and will tug at you to check out their products. Overall, not a good experience.

As other reviews state, this is a traditional market. So there will be meat, poultry and seafood lining the streets along withe vegetables and fruit. This is the real day to day life of the people here. Don’t let that stop you from coming. This is why you’re traveling. Inside the market there are many food vendors. You can eat a freshly made Vietnamese breakfast and watch the vendors work. Don’t miss it,

I’m purely rating this market from a tourists review and I would not recommend going to this market. It’s very intense and the smells are so terrible and so overpowering that it’s so hard to get past to looking at the produce on sale. There is some clothing, fake branded things and shoes however there is not a lot compared with other markets we visited in Ho Chi Minh. Overall a very bad experience for my friend and I and I wouldn’t recommend the visit unless you’re a local or wanting an ‘authentic’ Vietnamese market.

As others have mentioned, not for the feint hearted if you don’t like offal or pieces of animals, frogs or fish you don’t know existed. The street markets outside spread for miles. If you want to get a good insight into the culture then Ba Chieu market will provide that.

There are plenty of things we can buy in this market. Don’t hesitate to bargain strongly to get a good price. I like the food here. You, especially foreigners will definitely love the traditional Vietnamese food here. They are all affordable.
Plus, it’s easy to reach here by buses. From Ben Thanh, get bus number 18. From Go Vap, get bus number 24. From Mien Dong bus station, get bus number 24 or 95, etc.
This is one of the most popular markets in HCMC. Go and enjoy! ;-)

It is most definitely where the locals are. we caught the bus which was super cheap and very do-able. But it was pretty full on in terms of the food section, as an Australian I am not used to seeing full pig hooves and other animal bits up close and personal. The clothes on the top level did seem cheap, however none would ever fit me and I'm a size 10. If you have some extra time - sure, but if you have to go out of your way for this I possibly would say there's nothing you can't see a little closer to the city centre. Having said that everyone was very pleasant and tried to help where they could but no English.

I went here in the afternoon. This market has everything you will ever need: fruits, vegetables, and arrays of second-hand clothes.

Bought an authentic Zara jeans which look so new for only $2!
Also bought a lot of new-looking Japanese branded clothes for less than $1 each.
Sometimes, the clothes even still has a tag on it.
If you're a tourist, they might try to increase the price so be sure to haggle especially when you're buying more than one.

I've been to many markets in Saigon but so far, the fruits and vegetables here are the cheapest.
Bought eggplants, 1 whole cabbage, lettuce, onions, 7 pieces of whole garlic, 1/4 kilo of bean sprout, a big pumpkin, 1 kilo of banana, and 1/4 kilo of kiwi all for $5.
Kiwi is so expensive in Saigon but this is the only market where i could find Kiwi for a much cheaper price.

This is now my go-to market every week!
NOTE: Be careful of your pickpockets and don't shop here at night.

Shop like locals. this market is not a tourist attraction but if you want to see how locals shop you should visit here. But be prepared to bargain as they double the price for a tourist.
