Kowloon Wholesale Fruit Market

Kowloon Wholesale Fruit Market (Yaumatei Wholesale Fruit Market) was founded in 1913. There are still a number of relics of pre-war signboards on the outer walls of this historically valuable building. The market is located in the area enclosed by Waterloo Road, Reclamation Street and Shek Lung Street and has been the place for fruit wholesaling in Kowloon. Although the market moved to Cheung Sha Wan Wholesale Market Complex in 1990s, many wholesalers are still operating here. The hours from 4:00am to 6:00am are the busiest of the market every day. Container lorries keep coming in and out to deliver fruits. A huge number of labourers are busy carrying fruit boxes. Piles of fruit boxes can be found everywhere in the market. It is also interesting that many wholesalers use the word “lan” (I.e. wholesale market in Chinese) as the last character of the shop name. Location filming at individual shop requires applying to the respective wholesaler.
