Last November, over 400 people browsed through the pop-up Bay Market’s collection of local vendors, buying pre-loved goodies such as records, books, garments, art, games and unexpected gems.
A even-bigger round two has been set for April 15 at Kennedy Town’s Belcher Bay, and vendors are welcome to apply.
Alongside the flea market, community groups and boutique artisans will be joined by food and beverage stalls, along with live music all afternoon.
“The market was born out of a desire for something different. Cities around the world boast incredible flea markets that attract kids, families, tourists, and locals, but Hong Kong was missing out. So, we built something that fills this gap while also reducing the cycle of unsustainable shopping in the city,” the founders say.
According to RedressHK, 40 per cent of Hongkongers keep clothing for a year or under, whilst a third of residents put unwanted clothes in the bin. “We hope to bring the local community together, helping to find a new home for items that would otherwise be discarded or wasted,” the Bay Market team say.
