In keeping up with the trend of healthier lifestyles in Vietnam, new restaurants and shops carrying organic products have been popping up all over Ho Chi Minh City. It has never been easier to find specialized organic products. Our team found most of the organic product shops to be located in Districts 1, 2, and 7. We’ve narrowed down the search to our favorite five shops where you can find organic produce in Ho Chi Minh City.
The Organik Shop Dalat
Playing off the name of Vietnam’s popular and well-respected agricultural hub, The Organik Shop Dalat features mostly EU and USDA certified organic vegetables and herbs that are grown directly from their own farm in Dalat. The transparency of their supply chain, directly from farm to shop, means that their pricing is fair and cuts out the middleman. It’s one of our top picks in all of Ho Chi Minh City. Their design and branding also helps it stand out.

Nam An Market
Nam An’s specialized range of products makes it to the top of our list of organic shops in Ho Chi Minh City. The popularity and trust that Nam An Market has with consumers speaks for itself. Nam An Market carries a range of curated products, including an aisle for just “healthy snacks.” As if it wasn’t any easier to find what you need. We often find ourselves choosing between Nam An Market and The Organik Shop Dalat for our shopping in District 2.
Our only pick that makes the list, which doesn’t feature a physical location. Sweets de Luxe curates natural ingredients source from authentic suppliers from around the world including Japan, Australia, Europe, and America. Their product range features natural savory snacks such as nuts, dried fruits, and trail mixes. They’ll soon be moving into more specialized products such as homemade butters and organic honey. Their branding and packaging also makes it a top pick for us as a gift for your friends and family.
The largest gourmet organic retailer in our list, Annam Gourmet Market features five stores throughout Vietnam, four being in Ho Chi Minh City. The two largest stores with the most comprehensive selections are in Saigon Center and on Hai Ba Trung. Both feature coffee lounges where customers can also enjoy their food and drink. In fact, certain products like wine bottles will sell for an additional 10% off if you open it and enjoy in their lounge. Given their selection and central locations, Annam is probably the most convenient. Though we’ve also found the pricing to be a bit on the higher side. Annam Gourmet Market knows what they’re doing, they’ve been in business for more than 10 years.
One of the few organic product retailers that focuses exclusively on the Vietnamese market (their marketing efforts are entirely in Vietnamese language), Vinamit Organics also features many of their own products and packaging, cutting out the middleman like The Organik Shop. With that said, their selection is more limited than the other options.
