The area
Neighborhood: Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.

While some of old hk still exists these markets are worth visiting. Easy access from the mid level escalators. Some of the produce is cheaper than the supermarkets and some more expensive....so shop around. Relatively clean. Don’t expect to walkthrough quickly on a busy day.

It's just five minutes walk from back-door of my office building on Queen's Road Central. I usually walk up there once a week to the wet market and dried food stores. I can get everything here. The varieties and prices are amazing. Yesterday I paid HK$20 for 3 lbs of small mandarin oranges. If you looking for rare items like water-chestnuts, dried olives, Western and Eastern parsley, preserved gingers, cucumbers, come to this Graham Street Market. Whether you are chefs, housewives or tourists, you will visit this grand market again and again.

This is typical of a traditional, old-school street market with fresh food stalls. I believe that its Hong Kong’s oldest open-air market and has operated here for more than 140 years. It’s easy to get to from the Mid-Level escalators and is interesting for tourists to walk through, even if only to see the contrast between old Hong Kong and the surrounding modern skyscrapers and high-end designer shops.
It’s a colourful street with cut flowers, orchids, fruit and vegetables. There are exotic, tropical fruits like custard apples, melons and dragonfruit alongside every shade of green leafy vegetable - Chinese kale, morning glory and watercress. You’ll also see dried noodles and dried seafoods, blackened and straw covered eggs. Off to the side, along Gage St, there is a small strip of butchers’ stalls with interesting cuts of meat hanging in the open air. It’s a good way to get a quick glimpse into local food and culture.
The market street is narrow, steep and crowded but it is pedestrian only. While you are there, look out for some of Hong Kong’s most well known street art near the Hollywood Rd end. The most famous one is by local artist Alex Croft on the side of the G.O.D. shop and opposite, is British artist, Danks’ mural of a rainy HK street scene.

Another great find using the TripAdvisor City Guides app!

Spent about an hour just wandering through the market and looking at all the interesting things for sale. It was so easy to forget we were in a huge city. Loved all the bright colours and took so many photos!

Happened to wonder into this market street by accident, so glad we did, wished we had been staying in an apartment so i could have shopped and cooked. Wonderful selection and very cheap for HK standards.

Graham Street is a historical street market in Central District. The area around Graham and Gage Street, near the Mid-level escalator is a good spot if you are interested in seeing an open-air (wet) market during your visit to Hong Kong.

Here you will find many food stalls with fresh vegetables, fruits, sundries, flowers as well as fish, pork and other foods at the Gage Street corner. It is good place to take a few pictures even if you have no intent on buying anything. Give it a few minutes if you plan on spending time in the area.

Not really that interesting or unique at all. Starts late--not much going on there before about 0900. Just the standard stuff. Worth walking through if you're there, but almost every other city in the region that I've visited has a more energetic, diverse, interesting, and more photogenic market than this one.

I loved this street. True, it is just a market however I found myself just drawn to the medicinal and meat shops. I did go by myself and then with a private guide. After going with the guide, my eyes were opened to things I would not have noticed. It is a feast for the belly and for your eyes.

Our guide pointed out several places to try goose, congee, and silk stocking tea (which we did go back and try). I am traveling from Los Angeles and we have nothing like this here so I felt like truly looking into another culture.

I gave this such a high rating because I had a great time here and probably went 3x during my trip for food. This is also extremely close to Soho.

…despite the obvious difficulty of the incline and the steady gentrification all around. Whenever I walk down here, it’s always great to see it it still being used and the fruit and veg, for example, is similarly priced to markets I’ve been to in North Point, Wan Chai and Causeway Bay so you’ll pay a LOT less than in a supermarket.
