New Orleans

TB2MD0 New Orleans, Louisiana - A Vietnamese farmers market, held for a few hours early Saturday mornings in a parking lot in the city's Vietnamese community

The closest you'll come to witnessing Saigon on a Saturday morning (by the way, lots of local Vietnamese, being southern refugees, still call it 'Saigon') is the Vietnamese Farmers' Market. It is also known as the 'squat market' thanks to the ladies in non la (conical straw hats) squatting over their fresh, wonderful-smelling produce.
