Binh Dien Market

Covering 65ha near Nguyen Van Linh Road, Binh Dien Wholesale Market is the largest one in Ho Chi Minh City. It provides agricultural products and food for the South and South Central Coast’s provinces. 
The market is located at the western gateway of Ho Chi Minh City, about 5km from Phu My Hung Urban Area, 700m from the Highway 1A and along the Ben Luc River, very suitable for transporting goods on the waterway.

Binh Dien Market was designed with  many large kiosks selling different types of products, such as  fresh and dried aquatic products, meat, poultry, vegetables, fruit and flowers. At present, the market’s management board is now applying information technology to management to build it into a modern, civilized and e-commercial market.

According to Ho Phuoc Hai, Director of Binh Dien Market’s  Management Company, about 1,750 tonnes of products are collected per night at the market, valued at 48 – 50 billion dong (2.3 million dollars). Aquatic products account for 65% of the total revenue; meat of different types  about 22%; vegetables about 10%, fruit about 2.5%; and dried seafood 0.5%. The market strictly implemented the regulations on food safety and hygiene which is supervised by relevant bodies.

Nguyen Thi Kim Oanh (from BinhChanh District), a market goer, said that she lived 3km from the market so she often  goes to the market early to buy fresh food. Prices of products sold at the market are also cheaper, about 20-30% less than others.
