In short, visit the market on weekdays or visit after 10 am.

Here are some tips if you are planning a trip.


  • Do NOT travel far for your groceries. There is no need to make a special trip to these popular markets. Instead, shop for your groceries around your neighbourhood.
  • Opt for substitutes like Supermarkets or Mini marts to get your fresh produce.
  • Buy more per trip to avoid daily trips
  • If you are looking for options, we have a list of 10 other alternatives that has practically NO queues on a normal day.
