To ensure distance and safety against the Covid-19 pandemic, some small traders at the 7.2 hectares temporary market in Vinh Phuc (Ba Dinh district, Hanoi) have prepared pots and buckets for both selling and preventing the pandemic.
Immediately after the Hanoi People's Committee asked the government to clear the markets that temporarily encroached on sidewalks and roadways to prevent the risk of spreading the Covid-19 pandemic, most small businesses strictly complied. Photo: NhanDan

Many people think of a way to put food in pots, while buyers put money in a bucket next to it to limit contact and crowd gathering. Photo: NhanDan
People will tell the shop owner what they want to buy, be informed of the price and then drop the money in a plastic bucket. Photo: NhanDan

"This is an interesting way of selling goods, ensuring safety and complying with social distancing regulations. I am a big supporter of models like this”, a store owner said.
Along this street, there are many shops with signs that only serve take-out and shoppers must stand 2 meters away. Photo: NhanDan
In addition, the shops here also accept "help go to the market and deliver to the door". Photo: NhanDan
