It’s overwhelming choosing a place to try local authentic Hoi An food since nearly every eatery and restaurant serves the same menu. The food court in the market is probably the best choice for trying local food. Many of them have been serving food here for decades is what my guide told me. And it was great because I could sit in one place and try all the local dishes without having to search for them. Must try is the cao lau noodles, mi quang noodles, white rose wonton.

Inside of the old market hall, the air is thick with the delicius smell of the fresh made local dishes.
The second small stand at the right side of the main gate, is the place, where Mrs Van does her magic. With her lovely nature and unbeliavable skill for cooking, everybody will enjoy a meal made by her.
One of the best experiences in whole Vietnam!

visited here twice last year september when i travlled to HoiAn.this market incldued open air stalls and indoors market. heard that the food inside the market is great, so i tried a food stall,stall no is E050,Ms Gai stall.i ordered the famous cau lau noodle and white rose.also avocado juice. all were delicious, they have veggie menu too. there are many food stalls selling same food,so just have a try here, you wont regret. another day i came here for clothes and souvenirs.i visited two stalls,first i bought a small lantern,and some embroidered items,like small drawstring bags.another stall,i bought two shirts and a short. the shirts are printed in bamboo.but after washing, the colour a bit faded,so quality not good.also,even i try hard to bargain,the price still higher,not cheap.so only suggest you trying the food here,if want to buy souvenirs or clothes,go to any shops outside the market.

I love going to the wet markets in Asian countries - if for the unusualness, noise and smells. We stayed in Hoi An for 10 days and got to know some traders who would give us some extra fruit as we continued to buy from them. We would buy lots of fresh fruit daily. I like this market because it is compact and busy but beware of the motorcycles wizzing through as they make their purchases. Nearest the bridge is the live chicken market, then fruit market, but there are sellers selling bags etc. and meat out in the open. There is the fish market under cover as well. On the opposite side is the Central market with meat at the front through to dry goods and a restaurant/ food stall area all pretty much selling the same thing. The Cloth market seems to be right next door. I love the colours and smells and the oddity compared to the western lifestyle.

A very traditional market with bowl upon bowl and layer upon layer of fresh fruit and vegetables laid out upon the ground with stall holders in their conical shaped hats squatting beside them. Behind them are tables overloaded with fresh fish and hanging above their heads .0f the stall holders are nets of exotic smelling spices. Take care - the road is teeming with locals on their cycles and mopeds.

Let me skip the extensive review and get to the part about which stalls you should visit for the best sampling of local street food: Visit stall E012 and E011. Rest assured that you will be able to order what you want as the menu consists of photos and English descriptions. Worst case, you could always point at the stacks of food on the counter. We enjoyed the fare from E012 so much that we were there for 3 meals within a week. Our recommendations? Try Mi Quang, White Rose, banana flower with shrimp salad and Cao Lao. Or, be adventurous and sample their rice buffet option which was simply a smorgasbord of dishes complemented with fragrant rice. The pricing was decent and the owner, Mrs. Thanh will remind you of mothers who are more than happy to fatten you. E011 is a drinks stall which has the most delicious creamy avocado chocolate smoothie and a homegrown drink called Che. Try it so you can check it off your Vietnamese food list. Most of the vendors in the market offer similiar types of Vietnamese dishes, but our favourite has to be those two. We skipped the restaurants by the river as we wanted to try what the locals have on a daily basis. We walked away contented, emotionally and gastronomically. Besides the food stalls, there were a couple of sundry shops that you can get dried goods and kitchen wares from. The ones within the market are cheaper than the ones facing the roads. Walk away if you feel that the price is not right, you're bound to get a counter offer.

In this market is where I had my best meal in whole Vietnam! The typical hoi an dish of Cao Lau is a must have!! I had it in the market for about 1 dollar and it was supreme!! You can't really leave hoi an without having Cao Lau!

During my evening walk around Hoi An, I wanted to eat here as the food is freshly cooked before you and tastes excellent. There are many little kitchens set up and you just make up your mind which one to try, sitting on benches. This was Mrs Ha's little establishment.

Found this delicious Duck congee in Hoi An local Wet Market. If you are into local delicacy.

Front with a well, you could spot "Cho Hoi An" building. As you enter, you will see rows of food stall on both side.

Duck congee is located in mid way.
