Sài Gòn Fruit Fair on busy Nguyễn Tất Thanh Street in District 4 has emerged as a new destination for HCM City’s young people and budget-conscious consumers.
The fair, which opened on August 19, has more than 30 stalls selling fruits from the Mekong Delta such as mangosteen, durian, rambutan, watermelon, longan, grapefruit, and avocado, as well as imported fruits like New Zealand apples, Australian oranges and US cherries.
The fair also introduces international tourists to the richness of Vietnamese vegetables and fruits and promotes the unique cultural traits of the southern region through traditional favourites like the bamboo, folk music and áo bà ba (a shirt worn by southerners).
The establishment also offers fun activities including music shows at 7 pm every Saturday and Sunday, lucky draws and dance shows.
Visitors can enjoy tasty dishes made from fresh fruits, admire the art of making unique fruit juices and eat at street food stalls selling fried fish balls, fried sausages, French fries and corn fried with small shrimps at prices ranging from VNĐ10,000 to VNĐ25,000. — VNS
