Held in the heart of Meo Vac Town every Saturday and Sunday, the cow market draws people from the 18 communes and towns in Meo Vac district within Ha Giang province and the neighbouring Yen Minh and Dong Van districts. The market gate serves as the main spot for buying and selling livestock and poultry, farming tools, and various foods like fried rice balls and corn fritters. The majority of products available at the market, like vegetables, agricultural tools, brocade fabrics, spices, and herbs, are produced or made by the sellers themselves. The market is not only a place for trade, but it is also the meeting spot for friends to gossip about their daily lives. The weekly market has become a unique cultural tradition of ethnic people in Ha Giang province. VNA Photo: Đức Thọ
