I don't have any specific recommendations, but have you checked out the TF blogs? From the menu at the top Blogs -> Vietnam, then scroll down to to see the categories on the left. There are a bunch under food: https://www.travelfish.org/blogs/vietnam/category/saigon/food-saigon/ You should find something of interest in here. Many are reviews of restaurants, but there are probably some that cover various food markets, etc.
Hi! I'm joining XO Tour for my upcoming trip in April as well. But we decided to book the night tour as it seems more interesting and most likely easier to follow them to take a look of Saigon at night :) Probably can let you know the review if you are travelling after 6th May cause that's when I'll be back :)
My travel agent Flight Centre HK also suggested the XO Tour in Vietnam and said it was the best for foodies!
Is this the one: http://xotours.vn/Our_Tours/The_Foodie.html? Please do let us know how it goes! Since I am in Hong Kong, I can fly there anytime.

"The best food in Saigon is not in a restaurant at all - it's the street food. Look at the older parts of Noodlepie"
Then the food in Saigon must suck. Street food is practical and cheap. High end restaraunts, on the other hand, are suppose to serve high end cuisine.
