QUẢNG NAM — Trà Quế Vegetable Village is a “must-see” for visitors to the ancient town of Hội An in the Central province of Quảng Nam.
Located about 3km from the centre of Hội An, Trà Quế Village is well-known as the freshest and cleanest herb and vegetable supplier in Hội An.
The village has some 40ha of fertile land, sustaining more than 41 different kinds of vegetables.
Established 300 years ago and surrounded by the Đế Võng River, the first citizens of Trà Quế made a living by fishing. Gradually, they started taking advantage of the river’s abundant seaweed to make fertilizer. Trà Quế now supplies all Hoi An restaurants and households with the finest quality herbs and vegetables. Hoi An is considered the food mecca of Việt Nam and Trà Quế Village is the main contributor to this status.
This village is not only beautiful to look at; its real treasure lies in the quality of its soil. No chemicals are used in the plant-growing process. Also, it’s situated on top of a rice field, which adds to the richness of the soil. This guarantees you the best quality and the healthiest vegetables.
From Đà Nẵng, it takes a visitor about one hour to travel to Trà Quế Village by motorbike. — VNS
