Local Tour: Markets of Singapore

Date Wednesday, March 13
Time 9.00am to 1.00pm (approximately)
Venue Newton Food Centre Car Park
$63.00 Member  $78.00 Guest

Wet markets are an Asian phenomenon. They are windows into the soul of a country, a must-see attraction and cultural experience to newcomers and visitors alike. To most locals, wet markets are the “go-to” destination for the freshest produce and great deals.   

Wet markets gained their name from their frequently wet floors often caused by melting crushed ice used to keep the meat and seafood fresh.  

Come explore some of Singapore’s local markets where you will learn the names of some fresh produce not found in markets outside this part of the world. On this tour, you will visit the largest wholesale vegetable centre and its huge auction hall, offering fresh and organic fruits and vegetables.  

The ever-popular Geylang Serai Market, set in a traditional Malay village house and well stocked with spices as well as Malay specialties, is another market not to be missed.  Then it’s on to the Chinatown Wet Market, one of the most exotic in Singapore. Here you can find live frogs, turtles and black chickens as part of the vast selection of meats available. 

Be certain to wear comfortable shoes--that may get wet, and see some of the best markets in Singapore.  

NOTE: While wet markets accept only cash and not credit cards, please understand that this is an informational tour only. Time for shopping will be minimal and room on the bus for purchases is limited

If you have any questions about this tour, please email localtours@awasingapore.org
