NEA Looking For People To Become Hawkers, Give 50% OFF Rental For First 6 Months

Singaporeans are self-proclaimed foodies and the proof is in our pudding, or I should say in our Instagram feed.

Growing up in the 90s, hawker centres are ubiquitous, but with Singapore developing into a first-world country, they are slowly fading away.

Don’t get me wrong, they are still widely available but not as much as before and with the ageing population on the rise, uncles and aunties are giving up the woks and pots for the retirement which they greatly deserve.


Well, that is why the Hawker Centre 3.0 Committee was formed.

Created by the government, its aim is to sustain and promote the hawker trade since it is a cornerstone of Singapore’s heritage.

One of the initiatives to keep the hawker trade alive is to attract the younger crowd and if you have ever thought about owning your own hawker stall, this is your chance.

Incubation Stall Programme

In a press release by NEA, they mentioned that Senior Minister of State for the Environmental and Water Resources, Dr Amy Khor launched the NEA’s Incubation Stall Programme on 23 Feb.

This special programme is for aspiring hawkers who wants to have a go at running a hawker stall.

You will get 50% off the market rent for 6 months and it will be equipped with basic equipment so you won’t be forking out a whole lot of cash.

And after 6 months, if you feel you have a knack for this industry, you can be a full-time hawker.

So this is basically a trial period if you’re not too sure.

Who can apply

You have to be 18 years and above and you must have no former experience in running a food shop.

The Coca-Cola Plus Coffee has arrived in Singapore, and let’s just say that the taste is very subjective: one of us thinks it’s like coffee candy, one of us thinks it’s like carbonated dark chocolate milk and one of us think it’s like Vanilla Coke. However, none of us thinks that it’s worth a second try, simply because we’ll all rather have Coke and coffee separately.
