From the organizer:

Come to a Tet market event for the international community in Hanoi.

While the Vietnamese Lunar New Year (Tet) reflects the diversified culture of the Vietnamese people, a Tet market is regarded as a specific cultural activity. Traditionally, a typical Tet market offers an abundance of sticky rice, green leaf, rice wine, flowers and all kind of food, fruit and decorative plants for the Lunar New Year. When Tet approaches, people not only go to Tet market for shopping, but also to enjoy cultural activities and meet friends. Visiting a Tet market is really a fascinating experience, full of sights, sounds, scents and emotions.
