Information Phong Dien Floating Market

Phong Dien “floating” market near Can Tho city specializes in local produce.

Famous Ca Mau sedge mats on sale on Can Tho River

 

It is on the Can Tho River in Chau Thanh district, 17 km from the city, and its stalls are boats rowing back and forth selling mostly food like duck eggs, vermicelli soup, vermicelli with roast meat, porridge, and coffee.


The market is open daily from 4-5am to 7-8pm.


The biggest challenge at this romantic market is for customers to locate a product quickly since the “shops” keep moving back and forth and are not grouped together.


To locate a shop, one has to look up at the long pole on each boat on which sample products are displayed.

The traders gather on the river bank after a hard day’s work to drink tea or wine while singing and playing traditional songs. Simple, rustic, and charming.
