The Dam Market, also known locally as Nha Trang Market is the main market of the city. From 4 am till 6 pm, this marketplace is bustling with visitors in search of fresh produce, seafood, packaged goods, handmade clothes, and accessories. Since 1974, this building with designated sections on three floors has been serving the visitors with seafood delicacies like vacuum-sealed shrimp, cuttlefish and seaweed on the right wing while fish and meat is sold at the rear side. The front and the middle section is filled with locally made souvenirs like watches, handbags, branded clothing and sneakers which can be bought by bargaining, if you are skilled in it! After shopping at Dam Market, enjoy Vietnamese dishes like rice vermicelli with jellyfish, crispy pancake, and rolled cake.

Dam Market Reviews & Ratings
An easy going place to purchase trinkets, souvenirs, cheap ripoffs of sportswear, footwear, jewellery, electronics, dried exotic sea food and clothes. The place is unassuming and has the look of a bus station. The key attraction is the loads of shiny stuff on display at all shops. The caveat for all customers is that all 'branded' goods are fake. Nothing is half as close to an original. Still don't mind bagging the stuff, then be ready to haggle, if you want a decent deal. Just so you know the place starts business by 10 am and promptly shuts down by about 4:30 pm, so be there on time.
Great place to get a bargain but a lot of same same. So identify something you would like then look around at other stores. For example seen some shorts I liked started at $15 at one store ended up bartering down to $6 at my final store
Compared to most markets in Vietnam that market is relatively quiet to other markets in the country. As you would expect they sell everything from clothes to household goods to toys, glasses radios every electrical component you can think of, you'll find it there in the main building. The atmosphere there compared to others I have to say is quiet. But like any Market you have to bargain and it's not as severe as in Saigon Market. Here they don't want to to stab your eyes out when you start to bargain back but do a deal. Would I say that they are friendly yes I would, compare to the big in Market Saigon.
Pretty the same as most traditional markets in Vietnam and producrs sold are nearly the same. Clothings, footwear, souvenir, sunglasses and lots of food stuff especially the dried prawns, anchovies etc. All well displayed within the building but the "interesting" side of the market are those, lined up at the outside. Dirty, wet and haphazard! But this makes up for an interesting market.
Not as dodgy as we were let to believe. Backpacks were safe etc. Other than that it is just a massive smorgasbord or watches sunglasses shoes other clothes and random other things.
