Hong Kong fresh food markets are an absolute must on any visit to the ex-colony. Bustling with life and colour, they remain an everyday part of many locals life, and are also a great place to grab a bargain. You can get anything food related here, from fresh veggies n fruits, all kinds of meat, live seafood, to spices, sauces, herbs, dried food variety and little restaurants and stalls of cooked delicacies. I absolutely adore coming to the local markets and explore and try out new stuff. And trust me there is so much out here, that I haven’t seen in my life before, and every visit i’m discovering something new. So its always challenging to pick up new ingredients and experiment. To me HK is a foodies paradise, with so much available, its so hard to resist … both to cook and to eat out !
