Exhibition “Stories of Markets” at the Vietnamese Women’s Museum in Hanoi

The Exhibition starts from March 6th, 2014 at Vietnamese Women’s Museum, 36 Lý Thường Kiệt Street, Hoàn Kiếm District, Hanoi.

With its history of establishment and special and unique culture, Hanoi was in the past named Kẻ Chợ. Markets exist, develop and change along the rhythm of life of the capital city. Many markets in Hanoi now only exist in people’s memories as they have been turned into commercial centers or disappeared but markets are still present as part of the history and culture of Hanoi and are essential for each family.

The Exhibition “Stories of Markets” shares with you memories of old markets, real situation of present markets and expectations for future markets through archive photos and diverse and multi-dimensional voices from people, sellers and buyers.

In addition to visiting the Exhibition, you will have a chance to be back in a familiar space of a traditional market, feel free to buy clean agricultural produce or simply enjoy rural foods which are very simple but memorable.”


Noisy and animated atmosphere amidst the noises of sellers and buyers in a space full of familiar goods … It’s the market …

The Exhibition “Stories of Markets” is a gift from the Vietnamese Women’s Museum, to present to grandmothers, mothers and women on the occasion of the International Women’s Day, March 8th.

The Exhibition is jointly organized by Vietnamese Women’s MuseumHeathBridge and Fresh Studio.
