It has long moved back to the permanent Tekka Market on Srirangoon Rd. The location on Racecourse Road was due to renovations at Tekka Market done, I believe, back in 2010 thru 2011. I recall walking there numerous times long ago.

Lots of indian and a few asian stalls. Just be aware if there are no prices displayed they tend to charge triple the regular price. This basically is located in Little India. While you are visiting this, visit Mustafa Mall and Time Square as all are close to each other.

Take in all the sensory experiences you can here ... see, hear, feel, smell and - of course - taste. This is a wet market, so there is fresh food in abundance - some you may never have seen before. It's also an everyday market, so there's lots of locals going about their daily shopping here. You can wander about... More

We chose to skip paying for our hotel breakfast, yes tight i know, and ventured across the road and found Tekka, proving to be one of the best decisions of our holiday, seeing as though food is the centre point on which our holidays revolve around! When you're one of the few white people trawling the seemingly endless array of... More

I ate almost everyday at the Tekka Market, I have had breakfast, lunch, tea, dinner, evening night snacks at Tekka Market. Why I love it? Simply because it offers a wide range of food from different ethnic group: chinese chicken rice, malaysian tea and banana crepe, Halal food...etc. Am actually feeling hungry while I am typing this up. :) I...

My boyfriend and I visited in October and the market was so busy and fascinating! It gave you a small taste on India and how they buy and sell fresh products. Def worth a look!!

Recommendation: visit whichever stand has just opened a big pot of biryani, and buy your drinks from one of the stands that sells drinks only (they have the best lassis).
