In the Warehouse Zone, there are a variety of products ranging from household good to old electronic appliances and used auto parts. The best part? All are vintage in style and it is no surprise to see many hobbyist items such as old cameras and Coca-cola collectables.

In the Market Zone, there are more than 2,000 stalls selling trendy fashions and prices are low. It is also encouraged to explore and enjoy the sights and try the variety of all delicious snacks that are scattered throughout.

Lastly, in the Rod’s Antiques section, you will find a variety of antiques such as classic cars and motorbikes. Photographers can snap their pictures here – and you know what that means? Instagram, of course! But you are not allowed to touch anything any as these items are rare and have a price tag. Also, vintage items here are guaranteed to be genuine!

Getting there

It is easy to find Rot Fai Market as it is located directly behind Cultural Centre MRT Underground Station. If you’re taking a cab, you would want to consider taking the BTS Skytrain to On Nut Station before flagging a taxi there. Be reminded that traffic can be bad on Fridays and Saturdays.
