Every Sunday, villagers gather when the market is still covered in dense fog to buy and sell daily produce and livestock as well as textiles and clothing. Interestingly, the ready-made pleated Hmong skirts on sale at the market are now largely printed polyester imports from China, not the traditional ones fashioned from hemp. Few stalls carry handmade batik textiles, with most of the handmade goods limited to applique haberdashery and rolls of hand-woven hemp fabric.
Pa Co Sunday market is special to not only tourists but also local people for its unique spiritual significance. By visiting this market, you have a chance to discover the colorful and unique of H’mong ‘s culture.
