Best Markets in Chinatown
Local Recommendations from our My Guide Singapore team
Immerse yourself to Singapore's unique culture while visiting one of its many markets.
While visitng a local market, you'll be confronted to a melting pot of culture and flavours that will certainly inspire you and give you a better understanding of how Singaporeans live. Singapore boasts many colourful wet markets where you'll find all the fresh tropical fruits, vegetable, meat and fish of the region. The wet markets are always indoor due to the frequent heavy rains and they often feature an hawker section where you can taste Singapore's most beloved local food. Get your ingredients at the market! Not only you'll save money on food but you'll also get the best quality. Wet martkets often close in the early afternoon so we suggest that you plan your visit in the wee hours of the day so that you won't miss the action and will get the freshest produce. In this section, we'll also feature Singapore's most popular flea markets. This is where you'll witness the effervescence of the not-so-polished Singapore shopping scene and spot out the next local fashion trend.
