Nothing really fantastic about the market. Most of the stalls are selling the same stuff. If you go up to the 2nd floor, will see a group of H'mong ladies sewing and selling their ethnic fabrics products.

The H'mong women can be pushy with their items but there isn't anything worse than seeing little children pushing items - they should be in school not on the streets so please don't support this behaviour by buying from them!
