Phan Thiet Central Market is the largest of its kind in Mui Ne, hosting hundreds of stalls selling household items, fresh produce, and local delicacies every day. This outdoor market is at its busiest at dawn, with huge crowds haggling with vendors for an array of fresh fruits, spices, nuts, meat, dried foodstuff, and household supplies.
As Mui Ne is renowned for its traditional fishing villages, you’ll find just about any kind of fresh and cheap seafood here, from shrimps, squids and fishes to snails, clams, and crabs. The market is also a good place to enjoy authentic Vietnamese delicacies at very low prices, including banh xeo (crispy pancake), mi quang (turmeric noodles), and guoi cuon (fresh spring rolls).
If you’re looking to purchase souvenirs for loved ones back home during your visit to Phan Thiet Central Market, we highly recommend the quintessential nuoc mam cham (fermented fish dipping sauce), ceramic items, coconut candies, and intricate Cham textiles. As with most markets in Southeast Asia, make sure you bargain hard to get the best deals - a good start is 75% off the retail price.
Located at the intersection between Ly Thuong Kiet and Nguyen Hue Streets, this outdoor market is a must-visit for travellers looking to experience the daily lives of the local population. It can get rather humid during the summer, wearing comfortable clothing is a must when you’re visiting Phan Thiet Central Market.
