Veggie prices here are great and they're so friendly. This is now my main market and so close to home.

Tiny itsy bitsy market where you can purchase your basic vegetables, meats and some fish...probably a lot more lively in the morning. Made for some great pictures at noon with vendors sleeping next to their products on hammocks.

Handy if you need live frogs...

...plus loads of fresh meat and veg & seafood.

Im too green (or white) to comment on prices, but it seemed cheap.

I can't believe Hanoibloke thinks that this is the smallest market in Hanoi!

This is (currently) my local market and I have to say that its probably the best stocked market I've lived near in Hanoi. The only exception to that is the fruit issue mentioned by the previous reviewers. There are plenty of fruit sellers around outside the covered market though I'd recommend buying from the ladies with pannier baskets rather than the shops as they generally have better quality and cheaper goods.

Inside the market the vegetable sellers generally give good prices. I'd recommend sticking with one provider, this way you'll generally get decent prices (if your Vietnamese is up to it). If ever I can't find something I'll ask my helpful veg lady and she'll grab it from someone else for me. I've found lots of things here I've never seen in other markets such as (curly parsley was the latest nice surprise).

I do the same with the meat stall too which, although slightly more expensive than elsewhere, is good quality. You can have your meat minced, and they sell all sorts of useful cuts (for the adventurous cooks amongst you) such as tongue, trotters, hocks, solid fat etc. The normal cuts of pork and beef are good too.

Two legged meat (i.e. fowl) can be found in a separate section generally comes in 2 varieties: fatty chicken, and skinny, Ga Ta.

The seafood section is also very good, there are usually plenty of live large prawns, crabs, and fish; and a few of the vendors sell squid too.

I've been told that some of the vendors here buy their produce from farmers directly and not from the big wholesale market in Long Bien, which is another plus if true.

The only thing that I don't like about this market is that too many people drive their bikes around it, but that's hardly peculiar to this market.

Seafood and veges are what I get here, because it is handy
to home. Need to get here before 7pm though because they call it 'stumps' about then. The choice of seafood dwindles about a half hour before that.

I think I have been fairly treated most times here as I seem to pay the same when on own and when with a savvy local. When buying seafood the vendor has always given me the live prawns and withheld the ones that are 'sleeping'.

A good range of live crab, prawn, fish and shellfish.
There are plenty of four and two legged type meats too but while fascinated to see the vendors crouching on the bench and chopping the meat between their feet, not for me yet.

Only one or two fruit stalls inside the market, but several fruit stands outside along Nguyen Truong To.

Cho Chau Long is probably the smallest market in Ha Noi.
