This Sunday market is Bac Ha´s big draw. Bac Ha market is a magnet for the local hill tribe people, above all the exotically attired Flower H´mong. They gather at the market to trade goods and handmade products. There are a lot of handicrafts for sale, but it is still pretty much a local affair. The market begins at sunrise and winds down by 2 pm.
