Running from November to February, the popular "Sunday-Market-on-Wheels", features an innovative combination of sustainable and thematic gourmet delights
Taikoo Place's Tong Chong Street Market (TCSM)
is making a grand return in November, hosting unique food adventures like no other. Teaming up once again with local social enterprise, Honestly Green, the market will incorporate eco-living with food to promote healthy living and sustainability in Hong Kong. Staying true to the central theme, "My Street Tastes Better than Yours", the market will feature scrumptious delights and local homegrown produce that are found exclusively at the market.
This year, Tong Chong Street Market is kicking off on 5 November with a series of monthly spotlight themes featuring over 40 innovative food experts, passionate food vendors and local farmers for a unique tasting experience each month.
Starting with the Coffee Festival in November, marketgoers can indulge in an aromatic tasting journey with local and overseas coffee vendors, including an exclusive TCSM coffee blend, and take part in workshops for coffee appreciation and to upcycle coffee remains. Featuring cafés like premium boutique café Goodman Roaster
from Taiwan, known for their signature hand-drip coffee and Guangzhou's must-try coffee shop, APF Café
that offers coffee made from handpicked quality coffee beans and first-rate equipment. Not to mention we have lined up some local coffee vendors and cafes like Urban Coffee Roaster, Hazel & Hershey, Black Sugar Coffee and Roastery Lab by The Coffee Academics to work with Common Ground, the collaborative neighbourhood social hub, to explore different flavours and discover a new love for coffee roasts. With the arrival of December's cooler climate, we'll be bringing you hearty dishes with Pot Festival, followed by soups and other "Winter Warmers" in January and February to warm your soul during the chilly winter weather.
A treat for the taste buds and feast for the eyes, Tong Chong Street is revolutionizing to become a "Sunday-Market-on-Wheels," showcasing an array of gourmet delights in a multitude of eye-catching vehicles with original designs. Explore the colourful and photogenic market of food truck and movable food stalls, and enjoy a unique dining experience on an iconic double-decker bus.
