Each Saturday hundreds of people sprawl out on the grass, plates piled high with corn fritters, pillow-soft steamed buns or cheese toasties. There's also plenty to keep you hydrated, such as young coconut, green juices or freshly brewed iced chai. If you're visiting during the cooler months, don’t miss a hearty bowl of Vietnamese noodle soup from Bar Pho, which has become a market institution.
