For about 140 years, merchants have sold their wares in Graham Street, one of the city’s oldest wet market. The area is already changing. The Urban Renewal Authority replaces the street market and encompassing locations with housing, retail space, offices, and hotels. An integral part of Hong Kong life, both wet markets and dai pai dong (street food stalls) are part of the cultural relics and tourist attractions. Traditionally, wet markets are so termed because they are hosed down each day, cleaning out all the dirt, bits, and guts from each day’s activities. Wet markets are not as popular as they used to be, but there are still some in different neighborhoods. One of the oldest is on Graham Street in Central between Queen’s Road and Hollywood Road.
