love it
Jul 2020
This is where I go to buy all my dress fabric. I love this place, so much to choose from. Prices anywhere from 60k per metre up. Linen, cotton, rayon, lace, silk, it is all there. Sellers are friendly and helpful. I have my favourite sellers so I don't have to haggle anymore. If you love fabrics you will love upstairs at this market.

Fabric market upstairs
Jan 2020 • Couples
The Hom market has a whole floor dedicated to fabric. As a sewing enthusiast I really enjoyed browsing. A little pressure from sellers but not too much. Worth a look if you are local but don't make a special trip as not all stalls open all the time.

More to choose than Dong Xuan
Sep 2019 • Couples
This is a veritable Aladdin‘s Cave for the seamstress. I found fabrics of all manner here and very friendly ladies ....who will manhandle you into their shop gently ..if you allow them. A little bit of humour goes a long way here.
I found what I wanted and was able to bargain a good price For each piece I bought. I thought the variety was greater than at Dong Xuan And the ladies were definitely more approachable and ready to bargain. I bought linen, 100%cotton and stretch bamboo Lycra fabrics.
Do yourself a favour and come to this market if you are looking for fabrics.

Truly local market
Jul 2019 • Couples
There is a wet market on the ground floor where you can buy all sorts of fruits & vegetables and some street food. Ground floor is also the place for finished products. We went because I was hoping to find juice silk products instead of buying them in the Old Quarter, alas this is more the place to go but silk fabrics for making your own. Upper floors are all raw goods. But you might enjoy the Pho Hue neighborhood. Much more authentic than touristic Old Quarter.

Miles of fabric
Jun 2019 • Couples
Crazy amounts of fabric upstairs, no air conditioning so prepare to sweat.
Downstairs is fruit/veg, shoes, ready made clothes including underwear and swimmers.

Fabric market and more
May 2019 • Friends
Known as Hanoi's main fabric market, Hom is a really cool spot to explore even if you're not, in fact, looking for fabric. There is also a ground floor wet market with loads of fruits, vegetables and meats. Some guests complain that it's not "exciting" or "impressive." Visitors should remember that this isn't a tourist attraction per se. This is a functioning and busy local market. For people who are looking to have clothing, drapes, bedding, etc made, this is a good spot for a huge variety of fabric and adornments.

I'm told, however, that a lot of the name brand bags and shoes, etc are knock-offs.

If you like textile and fabrics you need to go here.on the second floor of this market are so many stalls that it is overwhelming. I enjoyed it a lot.

Culture shock
Jan 2019 • Family
Interesting to compare with Saigon (hmc). Much bigger as it has several floors packed to the roof with materials, clothes, shoes. Trainers etc. Not nearly as touristy as Saigon, as most did not speak English and did not confront us, but if you don't know what, or where you will find what you are looking for, or its value, it's hard to know where to start. Incredibly tight, maze like. Not much fun other than curiosity value, or if you have a need for say a backpack, or trainers and know what you want and which part its stored in. Heaven forbid there is a fire as it is packed with flammable materials, very tight spaces. We spent 20 minutes and could not wait to go.

Not as exciting as other Asian markets
Oct 2018 • Couples
Not as wow factor as other Asian markets I have visited, we went about 12 noon on a saturday and was very quiet. Same stock as in the shops and night market as well as homeward and kitchen utensils, I was under the impression this was more of a local but didn't feel it was anymore 'rustic' than any of the other markets in Hanoi.

Interesting but full on
Sep 2018 • Couples
This is the location of the local wet market and is worth seeing but probably not so much for tourists as it is for locals. It is pretty busy and there isn’t much space to move around. We didn’t spend too long here but it is worth experiencing.
