Why Con Market is special
The Con Market at 318 Ong Ich Khiem Street in Da Nang’s Hai Chau District is now the largest wholesale and retail venue in the central region, with over 2,000 traders operating there.
The market was first established in the 1940s on a hillock at the centre of the city. At that time, it was a perfect trading venue for the many traders from the city and the rural districts of Dai Loc, Que Son and Thang Binh in Quang Nam Province. The traders sold their locally grown agricultural products, mainly fresh vegetables and poultry.
Con market offers various types of goods, from the requisite items to high grade ones. Despite of not being a night market, this place is always busy even in the evening.
