Although Hong Kong has always offered traditional markets including produce stands, Western-style farmer’s markets offering organic goods and artisanal merchandise are starting to pop up around the city. The markets seek to bring high quality products to Hong Kong with the personal touch of local vendors. The largest market, Island East Market in the Quarry Bay neighborhood, opened in September and attracts local residents as well as visitors from further destinations in Hong Kong. The market takes place every Sunday from 10am-5pm.
