The market opens in an empty land lot in Can Cau Commune, Si Ma Cai District of Lao Cai Province
Even though this is a Mong Hoa and Giay market, their way of trading is like that of Dao ethnic minority people.

This highlands market demonstrates the lifestyle of ethnic minority groups that have been maintained for hundreds of years.

Visitors to the year-end market often buy their daily tools like new knives or sharp ploughshares but they do not forget to have a drink with their husbands or wives as well as friends. This is also a time for gossip.

There are different areas for farm produce, traditional clothes, and cattle
