Yen Chow Yen Chow Street hawker market situated at the junction of Yen Chow Street and Lai Chi Kok Road, is a small bazaar constructed with very simple materials, such as wood, nylon and Tin shelter. It is not air conditioned, one will feel really hot in the summer as there is no ventilation.

There are less than 100 stalls inside, each stuffed with different kinds of fabric, ribbon, buttons, etc. The price of the stalls are cheap, and you can really find a lot of style, color and types of textiles there. Some of the stall keepers are tailors too, you can ask them to make decent clothes for you.

In the 70s, many hawkers do their businesses on the street around Sham Shui Po. As the hawking affected the public traffic, the Government relocated them to continue their business in the Bazaar. There were over 100 stalls, as the ownership of the stalls are inherited by family members, as time goes by, some of the stall keepers retired and their descendant may not be willing to take up their business, many of them closed, resulting less and less stalls survived nowadays. That’s why it is one of the disappearing indigenous place in Hong Kong.
The stall keepers are mostly very kind and friendly, when I take pictures they don’t really mind. Some of the stall keepers are old friends, the atmosphere there is warm and lovely.

欽州街小販市場

位於欽州街和荔枝角道交界,是一座以木和鐵皮搭頂的小市場,外表看起來每法想像裡頭賣的是甚麼。由於沒有空調,夏天是挺悶熱的。裡頭塞滿了大大小小的布料鋪子,也有絲帶紐扣等。 若有服裝樣式提供,也有服裝訂製的服務。只要給師傅樣稿,三天即可取件。

地址:香港九龍深水埗欽州街與荔枝角道交叉口處

從深水埗港鐵站下車,C1出口循長沙灣道直行,遇欽州街左轉可抵,步行約10分鐘可達。
