I was very surprise to find fresh Norwegian Salmon at the market. The fish were neatly vacuum packed and it looked and felt very fresh (we poked - with approval). The seller knew her stuff and she spent the next 20 minute schooling us about salmon. We didn't buy cause I already brought some from SG the previous day, but will come back for sure the next time round.
I spotted raw chicken on sale. On first sight it look liked turmeric powder was smear on the chicken. My better half told me that it is actually corn -fed kampong chicken. I was still skeptical until she confirmed with the seller. As we continue down the street, My nose detected a pungent but familiar smell. To my right were container filled with various types of preserve vegetables. This is something I have not seen since I was a kid.
Visiting the Pasar Pagi may not be as exciting as walking along Orchard Road. But it is a good place to buy stuff at bargain price for the home, trying the local food and experiencing something different from what we are accustom to in SG.
Pasar Pagi @ Jalan Sri Pelangi

7am to 11am.
