Traditional Street Food And Street Market Of Prince Edward

October 26, 2022

Thank God It's Friday, as the expression goes, but here in Hive, it's time for #MarketFriday! @dswigle is always looking forward to this day because she will see several Market Friday blogs again. Her community's busiest day.


My virtual tour of the Prince Edward market didn't end yet. From Flower market to Pet market. For today's blog, let's go to the street market for general merchandise which is located just on the opposite street from the pet market, and the western side of the flower market. Prince Edward is undeniably a one-stop place to shop for all kinds of daily needs, even plants, pets, and of course, street foods.

The place is always bustling with tourists and locals; wandering, sightseeing, and shopping, holiday or non-holiday. This street market is one of those where people can find affordable fashion clothes, bags, shoes, home goods, and even imported clothes.

Despite the fact that Hong Kong is an expensive country, there are still local street markets where general merchandise can be purchased at reasonable prices. Street markets in Prince Edward are always crowded, regardless of the season or holidays, and have become some of the most popular destinations for tourists as well as locals.

A long stretch of street is lined with outdoor stalls and shops that offer shoppers a diverse selection of goods.

Ladies' apparel and fashion clothes and accessories. Some shops here are selling fashion items from Korea and Japan.

There are shops for lingeries.

Even gowns and cheaper clothes.

Outdoor gear and men's items.

Baby and kid's wear, and sleeping clothes.

Good quality bags, fashioned shoes, jewelry, and accessories.

This shop selling imported clothing from Europe, Korea, and Japan is my favorite part. All items are less expensive here than in mall boutiques. We can get high-quality clothing for as little as HK$5. It's simply a matter of scanning the items and selecting high-quality ones. When purchasing here, time and patience are required.

This is similar to what we call ukay-ukay in our country, or a shop selling cheap imported clothes, some are pre-loved, but some are brand new branded items. It was in this shop where I bought H&M long sleeves (just zoom the photo to see the tag) for only HK$39 or US$4.97.

And these two Korean branded long sleeves were bought for only HK$20 (US$2.55) each.

Since the cold season has started, there are already winter clothes displayed in different shops.

Apart from clothes, bags, and shoes, there are also shops selling housewares, home decor, beauty kits, and salon items.

Apart from personal items and houseware, there are several stalls selling a wide range of fruits. Some are peeled and packed, ready to be eaten by customers.

After wandering around this market, you can stop by to eat some Chinese street food and snacks sold within this market. There are tea shops, cafes, restaurants, and stalls selling Chinese cuisines, such as Peking duck, steamed chicken, barbecue, and roasted pork.

Apart from all food, this food cart on the street caught my interest. These are roasted chestnut, peanut, sweet potatoes, and quail eggs, cooked right in a huge wok along the street. Any old Hong Kong residents definitely know this food which began in the old century.

IMG_20220130_173057.jpg

There are only a limited number of old vendors pushing carts selling these foods, usually seen in the winter season. You don't need to like them, you just need to experience eating them if you happen to visit Hong Kong someday. But I don't think you'll be able to resist the aroma of roasted sweet potatoes, along with the tale scent of charcoal. One would definitely want to try it. These are flavorful and perfect bite-sized snacks while wandering around the street market.

But at the end of the day on one of my visits here, I opted to try some Chinese cuisine in one of the Chinese Dim Sum restaurants in Prince Edward.

One would also need to try dim sum foods too. You would certainly like them in the traditional Chinese style of eating along with traditional Chinese tea boiled right on the table. If you are curious about dim sum, you can check about it here.

That concludes my today's Market Friday blog initiated by @dswigle.
Advance happy weekend everyone.

China is a very interesting country for research. I hope the hive rate will rise and we will go to Asia. What is the approximate cost of food per month in China?

I am here in Hong Kong and my food is mostly covered by my boss.
But I always allocate HK$500 per month for my food during holidays 😊. That's equivalent to around Php4000 in our currency in the Philippines

This is such an awesome place!!! What an amazing experience this is for you (and for us!) I do love the street markets! I do not mind going through things to find a good deal! :)

The food is so abundant and how do you find the prices for food for the most part? Is street food expensive? Are the markets a lot higher than they are?

I will say that your post was gorgeous and the way you put it together and edited was wonderful. I just want you to know that. Those shirts that you tried on?? OMG! What a great price!!! Everything about Hong Kong is over the top amazing!!! You are so fortunate to have a paid vacation! LOL Thanks so much for sharing !!

I think it is important that you know how much I appreciate the time and effort put into posts. Thank you for your participating in #MarketFriday! I enjoy learning about your world and how it is to live in it. I find it interesting to compare standards, but, more than standards, by how we find the quality of our life with different indicators that the world does. It is not always about the wealth in money but includes many other things including being as healthy as possible, and being educated, but, not necessarily in school. I feel like a person is educated if they acquire knowledge and use it for the better good and happiness of the society they are living in. It is with great pleasure that I read through this and all of the posts, with these thoughts in mind.

I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to get to know you and your piece of the world just a little bit better. I have learned so much about the different cultures of the world, I especially love the small things in life and make a point to give them notice. Life has been interesting for me this week, and I hope your week has found you happy and healthy, as we all look to prosper in our way of life.

I have learned so much about all of you and it has been an amazing experience. I can only hope that learning about each other can help us work together for a peaceful world. Please take the time to read a couple #MarketFriday posts and leave a genuine comment behind. It is important to interact within the community, allowing for others to bond with each other. The fun is in getting to know people and making a positive contribution to community life. I am pretty sure that is why I joined Hive. All this fun and money too. What if not to love?


Fridays are all about the #MarketFriday Challenge! Looking to take part in it? Here is how:


Rules of the Road to Join #MarketFriday!


  1. Go to the market, or anywhere that you pay money for a service. It can be a movie, an auction, or even a museum. Wherever money is exchanged for a service or product.
    Take pictures! Be creative!
  2. Tell us a little bit about the market or the event. What brought you there? What did you buy? How much did it cost? Was it expensive? Did it go up or down? A scroll of pictures with few words doesn't usually work.
  3. Post the pictures. Of course, you should tell a little bit about the ones you post, it is too difficult to guess about some.
  4. Use the MarketFriday Community Platform to post (#hive-196308) This is not required but appreciated.
    PLEASE Drop the link into the MarketFriday comment section so I can find it!!
  5. Following me and reblogging the post would be appreciated, but not a rule, more vision for more views on the #MarketFriday posts!
    7. You must put #MarketFriday by @dswigle somewhere on your post.

As always, please remember! #MarketFriday loves you!
