Hong Kong 2012 Part 5 – Fresh Food Market

The Hong Kong-ers love their food and despite eating out very often with their wide selection of cafes, there are many fresh food markets located in each town. Staying in the vicinity of Tsuen Wan, I visited a fresh food market to see how different it was from the regular wet market in Singapore.

One key difference was, almost all the stalls in the wet market were open and teeming with customers at 4.30pm. And from what I heard from a local, that some of these markets are opened till 2am on certain nights, 7 days a week. The Hong Kong-ers are indeed a very industrious bunch!

It’s no wonder that food tastes so good in Hong Kong, with their variety and affordability of fresh food.
