Top ways to experience Tekka Temporary Market and similar attractions

The area
Neighbourhood: Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Centre, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colourful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.

I could have spent a couple of hours exploring the fresh food stalls full of fish, fruits, herbs and spices. The warren of shops provide a heady experience of aromas, alas, other family members just found it too smelly.

I love wet markets and the moment I arrived here people were friendly and smiling for photos. The market is primarily catering to the Indian community although there are also sellers of Muslim and Chinese products here too.

I found lots of fruits and vegetables, tofu, tempe, seafood, chicken, beef, mutton, dried goods and also packaged goods including spices, tinned goods, joss sticks etc.

At the eastern side of the market is the food court which sells all kinds of foods although predominantly Indian and Indian Muslim food but I also I saw some places selling Chinese food such as chicken rice.

This is a small wet and dry market but nice to see so many people chopping fish, meat and selling their goods and although I didn't eat in the food court area the food was varied and cheap.

Quite a lot of these venues around singapore. Plenty of vendors offering their local produce and cuisine. Not sure how many stars on their doors they would get back home. Tried a variety of foods. All happy

Tekka Market is an amazing market in the heart of Singapore. Fish, prawns and spices galore spill out from several beautifully arranged stalls. This is a full-on market so go early (7:45am) and dress casual. The prawn sellers are particularly good: fast, clear, knowledgeable. The vegetables were also fresh and varied. The meats, however, looked less appealing, reflecting the fact that most of it is imported. However, the presence of baby sharks for sale, some with their fins already sliced off, shocked me. I thought that sort of thing was banned? Also, it's best to wear robust shoes, like Crocs as sticky water pools around the unloading area, which is also closest to the MRT stop.

At first I wasn’t sold having come from the almost spotless and friendly streets of downtown Singapore.
Look beyond the hustle and bother of little India and you’ll find the jewel.
Best advise in any hawker market, look for the one where all of the locals are eating, most commonly you’ll see an old couple running it using their families secret touch.
Not disappointed here at all, spicy, flavoursome and filling.

There's nothing at all special about this wet market located on the corner of Serangoon road and Buffalo road and extending almost all the way to Racecourse road. Maybe if markets are your thing you might want to have a look, but actually the shops along Buffalo road are probably more interesting.

The Tekka Cenre is easy to get to via the MTRS and exit the train station and your are essentially at the Tekka Centre. This area has many small markets and vendors and a large array of small restaurants and is a fascinating place to walk through to soak up the local culture.

The Tekka Centre and market is a multi-use area comprising of shops, food centre and a wet market.

It is located on the corner of Serangoon road and Bukit Timah road, which is virtually on the doorstep of the Little India MRT.

Selling everything from souvenirs, spices, sweets, vegetables, traditional Indian attire and inexpensive casual clothes.

There is a variety of tantalizing food available to try, ranging from Indian, Vegetarian, Malay and Chinese.
