Fa Yuen Street Market Mong Kok

Along Fa Yuen Street from Prince Edward Road West (a short walk from the Flower and Bird Market) down to Mong Kok Road after 11am you’ll find a bustling local street market. Whilst geared towards locals rather than tourists, it’s just that which makes it interesting.

Here you’ll find lots of no-brand goods including fashion, bags, shoes, home goods, and lots of snacks. Along with the street stalls on the roadway, the streets normal stores are well worth checking out too. There are a couple of no brand gadget shops with items from HK$20 and fashion shops with everything under HK$50.
