Subdued for now...
Mar 2021
This open-air market along the Stanley waterfront has always been in the top 5 of any ‘Things To Do in Hong Kong’ list. However, it is only a fraction of what it once was. During these quiet and difficult times, many stalls are closed at least for now and it is sad to see it suffering because it was always so colourful, crowded and bustling.
I wandered through and there is still a reasonable range of clothing and clothing outlets, tablecloths and linen, art, costume jewellery and souvenirs – just not as much as before. There used to be a lot of children’s clothing places that sold well known brands with cut labels and also toy stalls but many of these were shut which leaves a gap in the market. Sun and Moon, one of the large clothing outlets, where you can find a lot or a little depending on what stock is in on the day, is still here.
Overall, it is still a nice outdoor activity. Stanley also has a couple of nice beaches, a new plaza and a string of waterfront restaurants and bars so you can easily fill in a couple of hours here. The 6X or 260 bus from Central goes directly to Stanley and is a fun, sometimes hairy, ride along the coastline (especially if you get a seat upstairs on the double decker).

Empty market during the pandemic
Nov 2020
In normal times, the Stanley Market is one of the buzzing, busy street market scenes filled with tourists and curious locals. It is a fun place to spend a couple hours in the leisurely seaside community of Stanley on the southern shores of Hong Kong Island.

Unfortunately, with tourists pretty much boxed out of Hong Kong because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the market is basically dead. Passed by on a Saturday afternoon recently and found only a few people amidst mostly empty shops lining the market street. A sad scene and something hard to imagine when recalling past visits, navigating through shoulder-to-shoulder pedestrian traffic and shops stuffed with shoppers. Not this year I'm afraid.

Browse quickly, make wise decisions, bring cash, keep your eyes open for a bargain.
That is my advice is you want to make the best of your time in the Stanley Market - a narrow street full of small shops selling all types of merchandise; primarily soft goods such as silk purses, robes, PJ's, etc. along with other Chinese items. Prices are very good as compared to other locations. Many vendors will bargain if you ask for their best price. If planning to purchase more than one of an item, get their best price than ask "how much for 2, 3?"

Despite being very touristy, i thoroughly enjoyed browsing the stalls of this market which is a lot less intense than the markets in Kowloon. Lots of inexpensive clothing and souvenirs that i hadn't seen else where.

Visited the Stanley Markets on 2 occasions during our visit. Great markets which contain all the same items you would see at Temple Street or the ladies market but with out all the hustle and bustle. These markets are open earlier in the day so they make for a great visit whilst you have lunch on the foreshore restaurants.

Not into touristy markets
Nov 2019 • Couples
I guess if you like shopping while on vacation then this is a place you would like to visit. It is just not how I want to spend my time in Hong Kong. We escaped the crowded market and walked past the beach to Stanley plaza where we could sit at a pub and enjoy a bite and a beer while we waited while other tour members had their hour and a half of shopping. Restrooms are available.

This market has been around for years. It is not a very big market but you can find all types of Chinese goods. We found a few "made in Thailand" products

This is the typical souvenir market in Stanley. Apart from the tourist stores, this place also has some boutiques for locals.

My husband used to live in Stanley and wanted to come and check out the old market. I did not expect to shop. But they had very reasonable prices on Chinese merchandise so I did a bit of Christmas shopping.:
