    ...which may well be a pain to regularly shop in as its layout isn’t all that easy to navigate BUT I found this feature actually made it more interesting to visit. The design seems to link it well to surrounding housing and transport infrastructure and even the markets as well. The ‘bazaar’ part is quite interesting to walk down, for example, as it does live up to its name. I also liked the range of restaurants here and I thoroughly recommend ‘Xia Mian Guan’ for Zhejiang/Shanghai cuisine. Given that I only work 20 minutes walk away, I can’t believe I haven’t come to this shopping centre for lunch before!

    If you have several days in Hong Kong, Wan Chai is worth exploring. It is still one of those places where you can see old and modern Hong Kong, sitting cheek by jowl. The outdoor markets cover several streets and are best explored by going for a wander.
    The wet market (food) is mostly along Cross St and Wan Chai Rd. It may not be for the squeamish but you’ll see the full range of traditional foods from live chickens to dried seafood. Alongside stalls of ‘1000 year old eggs’, there will be racks of salted fish, tanks of live fish, and unfamiliar sea creatures. Open-air butchers wield large bloodied cleavers and hang carcasses on hooks in the open air whilst next door, live chickens are sold.
    Cross St intersects with Tai Yuen St which is nicknamed Toy Street. In fact there are only about half a dozen toy shops at most, with cheap and cheerful toys. Children looking to spend pocket money will find something here (action figures, collectible cards, Lego-like blocks, dolls, stickers etc). Mainly the stalls on Tai Yuen St sell beads, trinkets, jade-like ornaments, orchids, cheap clothing, souvenirs and so on. It’s a fun place to wander with a lot of local colour. However if you have a shopping list and you are after a market with handbags, shoes and gifts, then you are better off going to Mong Kok Ladies Market.

    The Haiphong Road Temporary Market is not off the beaten track, it is literally hidden before your eyes. I've been into the market portion several times as well as walked on this section of Haiphong many times in my visits to Hong Kong but never knew of the hidden treasure further in. The market section has mostly fresh flowers and produce. If you enter from Haiphong Rd you need to wind past these stalls to get to the food vendors. Another option is to enter from the south, via Fuk Tak Temple which will deposit directly into the food court. In this food court is multiple miniature restaurants with (mostly) shared tables and stools. You have a wide variety of Chinese food to choose from and it appears that some stalls specialize in certain foods or preparations. You won't find very many tourists here. We encountered locals as well as businessmen in suit and tie. Since we only ate from one vendor I cannot comment on the wealth of other offerings. Haiphong Road Temporary Market is in direct contradiction to the fancy malls and their food courts just steps away. Even if you don't choose to eat here I highly recommend you visit to get a true local flavor of Hong Kong life that is right smack in TST. It wouldn't be hard to see in the future that this plot of land will be sold off to the highest bidder and developed into some multi-story building, therefore, taking away another vestige of Hong Kong history.

    You'll find quite a few indoor venues that serve as wet market and cooked food centres throughout Hong Kong including the Java Street Market in North Point. It is just south of the Harbour North Phase I mall and open from around 6am in the morning until 8pm.

    Here you will find stalls setup dealing in fruits, vegetables, seafood, meats, dried foods, frozen foods, sundries as well as a food court area for reasonably priced cooked meals. It is a typical indoor food market here in HK. The stalls are active from mid morning until early afternoon, they will start to pack up once they've sold enough for the day. Take a few photographs as you stroll through the market.

    If you enjoy wet (food) markets like these, nearby the Java Street Market is a pretty good wet street market along Chuen Yeung Street, just a couple minutes walk. There you'll see more of the same but in street shops and stalls.

    You'll find the Kowloon Soy Co Ltd. at 9 Graham Street between QRC and Wellington Street. They are open from 8am to 6pm daily (closed on Sundays). This is a neat little local shop and business that started in 1917. They continues to use age-old methods of producing small-batches of slow-brewed soy sauce as well as a few other bean curd and other food products. In short, you'll only find Kowloon Soy Co Ltd. soy sauces here in Hong Kong and at this shop.

    This is a really neat place to visit to see traditional, locally made soy sauce. Even better, they make for a good option if you are thinking about gift purchases for friends and family back home. If you are looking for something unique, impossible to find outside of Hong Kong, good quality and tasty, this place is worth stopping by.

    ...like other wet markets across HK. If you’re coming here, it’s for inexpensive but short-lived produce and, even though this place is hardly the cleanest, every neighbourhood in HK needs one.

    This is a fun take on the food street creation by Taikoo Place setup along a small stretch of Tong Chong Street, just outside the Dorset House in Quarry Bay. The concept is to promote and sponsor healthy living and sustainability. You'll find a seasonal rotation of vendors, representing local restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops and the likes selling light bites and drinks from 8am to 3pm daily on weekdays. Note the street market is closed on weekends.

    The street market theme changes every few months. Presently (Oct 2021) the vendors are focusing on Asian foods. From Nov-Dec 2021, a coffee festival will take place on Tong Chong Street. You can visit the Taikoo Place website for information about the street market and see a line up of vendors on location when you may be interested in visiting.

    Gresson Street in Wan Chai is a neat spot to visit during the build up to the Chinese New Year holiday (late Jan - mid Feb) each year. The stalls nearest to Queen's Road East sell orchids and various flowers throughout the year but load up with beautiful Chinese New Year seasonal plants, small potted trees and flower arrangements that are beautiful to see.

    You'll find lucky bamboo, colourful willows, kumquat trees, orchids, cherry blossom stems and many more. This year in particular the potted arrangements have been particularly impressive, the blooms are coming out at just the right time for the holiday. Stall keepers are happy for you to take as many pictures as you like.

    Note: Compared to places like Victoria Park (Causeway Bay) and the Flower Market (Mongkok), the crowds here are nothing like the crushing masses you will encounter in our proper CNY event and market locations. This is a reason we like to pass by Gresson Street during the holiday period each year.

    The Wanchai Market consists of several places. From 1937 to 2008, the Old Market Building at 267 Queen's Road East, which is now a Grade III Historic Building in Hong Kong held a regular indoor wet market.

    A new market building called the Zenith was constructed just across the street and assumed the old wet market in 2008. This is a traditional setup with multiple floors and an organised indoor wet market setup. Basically, you can find food market buildings like this in all districts throughout the city. Vendors don't mind you taking pictures of their food and produce.

    Perhaps most interesting however, the open-air street market located outside the Wanchai Market building and around the intersection of Cross and Tai Yuen Streets as well as along Wan Chai Road. Here you find one of the largest and busiest outdoor markets in Hong Kong Island.

    You will find sections dealing in clothings, stationary, holiday decorations as well as an entire street lined with toy shops and stalls selling cheap toys. Another area is a wet market, just like what you see in the Wanchai Market building with stalls and shops dealing meat, seafood, fruit, vegetables, sundries as well as cooked foods and some casual eateries.

    The Wanchai Markets is a buzzing scene. It can be spectacularly crowded here on weekends, midweek visits not so bad but there just seems to always be quite a few people doing their shopping in these market streets. It is a photogenic area as well, worth a few snaps from your camera.

    The Kowloon City Market and Cooked Food Centre is located within the three-storey Municipal Services Building on Nga Tsin Wai Road in Kowloon City. It shares space with the Kowloon City Sports Centre and Library is open from roughly 6am to 8pm daily. This market is very near to the Kowloon Walled City Park and can be conveniently visited before or after spending time at the park if interested.

    What you will see here is a typical wet market scene with the ground and first floor filled with stalls dealing seafood, meat, poultry, vegetables and fruits. This market is particularly noted for imported durian fruit during the summer time. You'll also find sundries, dried seafood, frozen foods, flowers as well as a cooked food hall on the 3rd floor. As you will see with similar indoor markets around the city, the shops around the Kowloon City Market are something of a spillover with additional food shops and casual eateries.

    There are a few interesting things to see/do in the Shau Kei Wan area of the Eastern District. If you enjoy visiting street markets, there is a colourful, active and photogenic wet market found along Kam Wan Street between Mong Lung Street (east) and Aldrich Street (west). Vendors are usually up and raring to go by mid morning and the market becomes busy by late morning.

    If you pass by in the mid morning, you will see vendors well stocked with fresh vegetables, fruits, eggs, sundries, local snack and speciality foods. Most of the meat and seafood places are in the shops behind the street stalls. There you'll find food shops and casual eateries as well. Just be patient for photograph taking if the market is crowded. Or come by a bit earlier if you want less obstructed views and shots.
