Street Market at Reclamation Street 新填地街經典排檔

Street Market at Reclamtion Street  新填地街經典排檔


The street market at Reclamation Street is a fascinating place! The stalls, which mainly feature fresh fruit and herbal medicine, are framed by old tenement buildings on both sides of the street. This drawing is based on a series of photos I took there a few weeks ago.

Such charming street markets and their street cultures are under threat now as large developers are pulling down these old buildings in every old district at an alarming speed.

新填地街排檔迷人之處不止於小商戶售賣各式各樣的新鮮水果同中草藥,而是那種在冷氣商場內找不到的人情味。
