3. Ba Diem Market

Ba Diem Market is located on Ba Diem Commune (Hoc Mon District, HCMC). According to many documents, this place had a lot of fierce tigers. At midnight, it was said that some people took agriculture products from Ben Nghe to their places, usually going by torchlight in order to drive tigers away. Ba Diem Commune also has 18 hamlets where betel and areca are planted.

Mr. Le Trung Hoa – a Vietnamese researcher on linguistics – supposed that Mrs.Diem was the keeper of the first tea shop of this area. Therefore, since this time, her name has become named for the market.

4. Ba Queo Market

The name has changed to Vo Thanh Trang Market, and it’s located on Truong Chinh Road, Tan Binh District, HCMC.

This market was established in 1967, 2000m2 with many stalls. After 1975, its name has been changed to “Võ Thành Trang”, but, of course, “Bà Quẹo” is used more frequently.

According to Vuong Hong Sen, a Vietnamese scholar, the name “Bà Quẹo” originally came from “Bờ Quẹo” or “Bàu Quẹo”. He said in the past, there was a road named Thien Ly here, it had a very visual turn, and “Bà Quẹo” (turning = quẹo/cua like in turning left = quẹo trái) has come from here.
