Tips and travel guide to all sorts of Hong Kong Fruit Market

Yau Ma Tei Wholesale Fruit Market is a real paradise in Hong Kong where you can find a wide variety of fruits, including fine and rare fruits. The premier focus is on wholesale, even though in front of the market there are many shops open to the general public.

Discovering Yau Ma Tei Fruit Market

Yau Ma Tei fruit market was constructed and opened in 1913. Government Vegetables Market was the initial name. While at first only fruit and vegetables were sold in the market, in the 1930s also fish traders settled in the market, they also provided poultry, rice, and other food.

The Yau Ma Tei Fruit Market specialized solely in fruit after the vegetables and fishmongers relocated to the newly established Cheung Sha Wan Wholesale Vegetable Market and Cheung Sha Wan Wholesale Fish Market in Cheung Sha Wan’s neighboring area in the mid-1960s.

At present, the upper rooms are never utilized as living spaces but as storage rooms and sanitary facilities. The stands are made of stones. Most of the hallways are also covered or lined with arcades architecturally attractive.

What fruits can you get from there?

Mangosteen is said to be the “Queen of Fruits” in the world’s three great fruits. There are lots of tropical fruits, a fruit called Hairy or Rambutan and Lemb which called Rose Apple. There are such long and narrow grapes and durian whose smell is intense. It is astonishing to find triangular and cubic watermelons. The Japanese giant white peaches are amazing.

Many other common fruits are easy to find here such as strawberries, melons, apples, peaches, grapes, pears, large mango, small mango, mandarin orange, and dragon fruit.

Opening hours and shopping tips

The market is open all day but it is best to go early in the morning to get the freshest products.

Bring cash because some merchants only accept cash payment.

You will find many shops and boxes on the sides. Some traders speak English well and have great experience in selling fruits and knowledgeable in their varieties. If you discover differences between rates, it will be fantastic if you have a Cantonese-speaking friend to assist you with bargaining.

The differences between wholesale fruit market and supermarket

Wholesalers purchase huge amounts of merchandise and sell them to retailers. The wholesaler has at least one stockroom to store the fruits, and trucks to convey requests made by stores. Supermarkets are smaller and more limited than in wholesale markets. But you can find goods at better prices in wholesale markets.
