Most Singaporeans will know, or even eaten at the Tiong Bahru Market and Food Centre. Built in the 1950s as the Seng Poh Market by the Singapore Improvement Trust (SIT), it was the first to be built in a housing area. It houses many local delights such as Jian Bo Shui Kueh and Tiong Bahru Hokkien Mee.
In 2004, the old market was demolished to make way for the new one that we see today. While it was being rebuilt, the hawkers were relocated to a temporary location nearby. The new market was completed in May 2006.
I was doing some housekeeping of my photos when I came across a set of photos I’ve taken in 2004, just before the old market and food centre was demolished to make way for the new one we see today. I’m sharing some of them here in this blog post.
You can find more photos of the old Tiong Bahru Market in my Flickr Album.
