This is a hawker centre where they sold mostly local food and the prices are quite reasonable . This estate is so old and most of the hawkers are long timers and the food they sold are so good.
Just walked across the hawker centre is the wet and dry market. The wet part sold fishes, chicken, vegetables, etc , while the dry sold dry groceries , clothes, cloth, household items, etc. Did you spot the "P" in Whampoa as a contribution to Pink Saturday?
Did you spot any pink dress in the above photo?
Inside the market will be the wet part, where they sold poultry, fishes, etc
As it is near noon, the market is close for the day, so the stall holders has to wash and keep their stalls clean.
I hope you enjoy the introduction of the market and hawker centre. :)

Hi Alice, thanks for covering Whampoa. It is my childhood neighborhood! And a lot has changed. I still can recall some of the sites, and recognise the changes. Although my family moved out from there for many years now, but I know my mom likes to go back to Balestier for the food. haha...

Glad you shared the market with us. I feel like I have been to visit you. Nice post.
A wet market is a totally different experience. So carefree and bargain, if you must!!
I am sorry that it as taken me so long to drop by and see this post.. thank you for letting me know you had posted it.. as you know it as been hectic here.. in a very nice way...
I loved this... then again Alice I knew I would... I worked on a market many many years ago, I would be one of the first there.. setting up a fruit and veg stall.... when the owner came and his day workers I would go home or sometimes hang around and look after other stalls.. I was 14 then and as my dad had died when I was 11 this extry income... plus free fruit and veg was very handy. I look back on those times as happy ones bought about by great sadness.
I have always felt at home with market people...
I also like the name 'Hawker..... it must go back hundreds of years... Great posting Alice.. thank you for the memories and sorry I was late getting by here.
