Your guide to the Wet Markets in Singapore

All you need to know about the Wet Markets in Singapore

Morning markets or wet markets are where locals shop for fresh groceries and produce. Anything from meat, spices, fruits, and fish, you’ll get at almost all wet markets. Even with the ubiquity of supermarkets nowadays, wet markets have retained their relevance by guaranteeing freshness and personal rapport between loyal customers and stall mongers.

For most visitors and even younger Singaporeans, a trip to the wet market will be a surprise treat for the senses. Visitors will immediately notice the somewhat disconcerting smell of fresh seafood and meat lingering in the air. The use of ice to keep frozen meat and fish fresh has thus led to slippery floors, so do watch your step! You certainly do not want to fall and drench your clothes in food smells!

Opening Hours

All wet markets are open to the public. All stalls usually close by mid-day. Therefore, the best time to visit would be between 7 to 9 am.
