The Hong Kong Western Market, located in Sheung Wan, is the oldest surviving market building in the metropolitan. It is an Edwardian style building converted into a shopping complex selling fabrics, handicrafts and art. Hong Kong Western Market is a great place to buy things which look like they are straight out of a museum.
Renovated in 1991 the red brick building was constructed in the 1906. The Western Market is an extended part of the large shopping area of the north which started operating in the mid 19th century. The brick facade is constructed in the Queen Anne Revival style, with "bandaged" brickwork on the four corner towers, showcasing a polychromatic effect. The building was originally blue in colour which was later converted to red.
