The Da Lat Central Market location is downtown. The large white stone market bustles with vendors and buyers. The floor of the indoor market contains mini stalls everywhere. There are tables piled high with fresh fruit and vegetables. There are papayas, mangoes, strawberries, and mulberries. Cabbage and greens cover tables. Most of the produce is unknown by the western traveler, but they are delicious.
Walk the length of the market. Buy some fruit for lunch. Remember, the vendors love to bargain so if the process is not your cup of tea forgo buying anything.
