Unlike the rush of the usual market, the Vieng market is a "sacred" market. Both the buyers and sellers, who arrived in the market, do not much concern about the profits. They only want to "buy fortune and sell bad luck" for wishing a lucky new year.

The market sells typical things such as ornamental plants, antiques, old furniture and tools for farmers. In the northern plains, the vast majority of people working in the fields or in trade are trying to take part in the Vieng market.
