YEN BAI (VNS) — A market along National Highway 32C near the Ban Hoc Bridge in Van Chan District's Suoi Bu Commune in the northern province of Yen Bai sells all of its produce for VND5,000 (US$0.2) each.
Ethnic Mong, Dao and Tay sell their vegetables, fruits and other agricultural produce at the market, as well as banh chung (square-shape glutinous rice cake) and medicinal herbs.
The market opened about 15 years ago. Previously, ethnic people in the area took their produce to the Van Chan District Market to sell.
On the way to the market, they sold their produce along the highway and then gradually set up a one-price market there. — VNS
