Geylang Serai Market is one of the biggest and busiest wet markets in Singapore. Since 1964, this market has been a focal point for the local Malay community, with a good selection of Malay and Indian-Muslim specialties on offer.
Reopened in 2010, the new Geylang Serai Market has become brighter and cleaner but the atmosphere of the old traditional market is still maintained.
After renovation, this market is dressed in a cultural suit – a traditional Malay kampong house. Either on weekday or weekend, it is always vibrant. Especially, middle-aged shoppers come here to do their daily shopping, plus flocks of young people come for good foods at weekends.
This market is a source of ingredients for Malay Singaporeans to prepare traditional dishes and supplies all sorts of Malay spices and a variety of Middle Eastern ones as well. Pork is not on offer at this market. Prices here are among the lowest in Singapore, especially fish prices
The second floor of Geylang Serai Market is home to hundreds of food stalls with main focus on Malay and Indian cuisine. This is the best food court to enjoy Malay dishes such as asam pedas stingray (spicy stingray), beef rendang (spicy beef), ikan terubok (fried fish) and goreng pisang (banana fritters).
