"I don't remember what camera I used to take these photos. All that I could remember was that it was taken when I went for a bowl of pho at Uncle Tieu at no. 8 Hang Da. The pho seller said the market was going to be pulled down in 2-3 days. I was afraid I would never see the old market again, so I took the photos. This place was familiar to me when I was a kid," she said to Zing. (Photo: Zing News)

Over the years, the Hang Da market has changed so much that Linh Thach gradually forgot the details of its old settings. "All that was left was the familiar sellers," she said. (Photo: Zing News)

Traders in the market were mostly those who lived around the area. Some came from other provinces to Hanoi, bringing food and goods from their hometowns to sell on the sidewalk. Later, they built the area into a market. (Photo: Zing News)
