Why can't visitors visit the market at sunrise to be hold a fresh? Why at dawn? It's because the market at dawn is like a person's infanthood, which is beautiful and pure. Dew remains on the mosquito net covering the kids sleeping on the boats' roof. Gradually the dew dries as a busy trading day begins.

Hundreds of small and big boats, well-loaded, are side by side, creating a long row. Sellers and buyers in boats pass by. The early morning is the time of small boats with women selling breakfast foods, with the fragrance of cakes spreading farther than the calls. It is also the time of motorboats that come from hundreds of rivers and rivulets to buy goods, especially vegetables, and then head off on long selling trips. And it's the time of vendors on the boats getting busy about displaying their produce to make it look the freshest and their boats the tidiest.

In the old days, like many other floating markets in the delta, the market on the Ca Mau River traded many commodities, from basic goods to furniture. Now, that form of trading is found only with the vegetable motorboats that go to people's homes, whereas the Ca Mau. Floating Market only wholesales fresh agro-products, especially vegetables and fruit.
