In the old days, Han Market was merely a modest trading venue for small businessmen. However, the prime location of this market has enabled it to expand into a significant trading hub along Han River. Thus, people gave it the name Han Market.

In the 1940s, the market was officially opened. In order to deliver commodities to Han Market, the French built a large train system named Tourane Marché. As businesses expanded, some Chinese and Vietnamese merchants decided to construct a commercial area surrounding the market with food stores, jewelry stores, pharmacy stores, and so on.
