Walking around the streets of Ha Noi, you can easily spot street vendors. They are mostly women, shabbily dressed, walking painstakingly and patiently with a heavy burden on their shoulders.These vendors are generally from different rural areas, who flock to the city to earn a living
Their goods are of all kinds, from "seasonal food" of Ha Noi like com (green rice flakes) and different fruits to the ordinary food like vendor sweet potatoes, maize and bananas, vendor flowers, vendor books... These things are rarely sold in major stores, but people can buy them at just a few thousands dong. Each seller is like a "mobile shop". They stop temporarily on the sidewalk when a client calls. Their clients are usually local residents, who just stand at their front door and call out for the food. The street vendors have become familiar to Hanoians.
