Central Market
80 Des Voeux Road Central

A market was operated by the Chinese residents of Central and Sheung Wan districts on this site as early as 1842. Central Market was rebuilt as the Western marble structure shown in this photograph in 1895 and its reconstruction in the Bauhaus style between 1938 and 1939 made it the most modern market of the era. The market was closed in 2003.
