There is also a large ceramics market with many small business people selling a wide variety of items large and small.

These local families have specialized in weaving and dying silk over many centuries, and retain many of the ancient secrets for producing their distinctive and gorgeous fabrics. Clothing, wall hangings, and other intriguing choices abound.
• Ha Thai Lacquerware village: famous far and wide for the distinguished lacquerware made here for over a thousand years. Ha Thai lacquer products are made with a centuries-old technique of applying and polishing layer upon layer of varnish from the Vietnamese lacquer tree (Rhus succedanea). Combined with eggshell and mother-of-pearl inlays, the lacquer works of art found here come in thousands of designs and varieties.
• Dong Ho village: preserves another ancient culture of the Red River Delta. The village is well known for its traditional woodblock paintings. Carved wood is pressed onto prints that illustrate wishes for good luck and typical scenes from rural life. Each painting is completely handmade on paper of the Dzo tree and is colored with other natural materials and its glittery surface is finished with oyster shell dust.
