Originally named “Wood Market”, the market was built in 1929 by French ambassador Chassaing and was located at the site where the Hoa Binh Theatre is nowadays. The market was made from pine wood, which is the reason people call it Wood Market. It burned down in 1937 and was rebuilt in brick. In 1958 the market was moved to its present location.
Cho Da Lat is a huge crowded indoor/outdoor market offering a wide variety of goods and produce: fruits, vegetables, meat, poultry, fish, seafood, eggs, dried and candied fruits, preserves, grains, seeds, nuts, coffee, tea, wine, flowers. The upper floor has many small stalls selling clothes and also silk embroidered pictures.
