Hello, happy weekend to everybody! How is your day? Hope you stay safe and healthy always.

This morning I went to a wet market near to my staying place which’s quite crowded during the weekends. But because of Covid-19 safety measure, the rules of limitation of people to enter the wet market is strictly carried out by Singapore government. Therefore, the numbers of people who entering the wet market is under control.

Have you been Singapore wet market?

Today let me bring you walk around most of the local residents frequently visit place, THE WET MARKET in Singapore local neighbourhood area.

As usual, we have to queue and keep social distancing before enter the wet market. There were few officers on duty to monitor the numbers of people who entering the market. If there reaching the limitation, the rest of people have to queue and wait for a while.

Obviously the numbers of people who visit wet market are getting lesser compare to previously, not as crowded as last time. Everybody have to follow the Covid-19 safety measure strictly to wear the masks in the wet market.

The floor is marked with red line with 1 metre distancing. All the people have to follow the red line marking distance to queue and buying the things.

There are many stalls selling variety goods and products such as eggs, fishes, prawns, vegetables, fruits, tofu, mushrooms, meats, breads, cakes, condiments, can gourmets, preserved food, drinks, clothes, shoes, etc. Therefore, the local residents can either visit hypermarket, supermarket in the mall, or wet market for buying groceries, very convenient.

Overall the price of things are selling in in wet market is cheaper compared to the things selling in hypermarket and supermarket.

For vegetables, the selling price is around SGD0.50 to SGD2.50. Singapore authority has variety supplier sources from different countries. They are mostly imported vegetables from different countries, and 20-30% are local products.

For the fruits, the overall prices are cheaper too if compared with the fruits are selling in hypermarkets and supermarkets. The freshness is good as well.

Therefore, I like to go to the wet market sometimes in terms of budget, we can buy more items and save more money.

Continued my shopping journey, I came to bread shop next to the wet market. As usual, we had to scan QR Code for attendance and queued before entering the shop. It is really tiring to scan QR Code here and there.

This weekend I didn’t buy many stuffs as I have to start a design project soon, and not plan to cook frequently. Therefore, I just bought some simple vegetables and fruits to top up the stocks in my fridge.

Wearing the mask whenever we go out. Thank you Singapore government distribute the reusable marks to all the local citizens, permanent residents and work permit folders for few times. We collected the reusable marks from nearby community centre.

Nowadays wherever we go, we have to wear face mask and keep social distancing at least 1 meter with others.

Hope you stay safe and healthy. Have a nice weekend!

Thank you #MarketFriday by @dswigle.

Truly, I would use the wet market instead of the other market. Who can resist a great buy and the products look fresh. I am not sure they can look any fresher! I have to be honest. I didn't realize that Singapore had a wet market. You are the first one from there to show it off.

I am so happy that you took the time to take great pictures. Even though they are trying, they really are not being socially distant all the time. But, in a place that is as crowded as Singapore, I am not sure that is possible at all times. I can see how responsible most people are, adhering to the rules, but, even when they limit the number of people, chances are, it is going to get a little crowded.

Thank you so much @dswigle.
It is my pleasure that you appreciated my post for writing about wet market in Singapore.
It is a popular place for local residents and whom living for long term in the country as from there can save budget and get all fresh stuffs. In fact there are getting lesser wet markets in Singapore due to upgrading programmes and new development. Therefore, usually it is only appear in mature and old developed estate. For those who living in new neighbourhood, there is no wet market.
Thank you again @dswigle. Your appreciation keep me going on :))))

A nice market with lots of yummy fresh fruit and veggies and it's a shame only limited amount of people can enter at a time but better to be safe then sorry.

Thank you @bigsambucca commenting. Yes, government control the numbers of visitors, therefore we have to wait and queue before entering the market.
