Original Site of the Western Market
(South Block)
(Sheung Wan Complex)

345 Queen's Road Central

Initially a very shabby market, Western Market opened for business in 1844 on land leased from the government by merchants of Central and Sheung Wan. The South Block was built in 1858, and the North Block in 1906 when the market could no longer meet the demands of the district’s growing population. The South Block was demolished in 1980 and later replaced by the Sheung Wan Complex.
