For real foodies, this is the market to attend. Founders Joseph Chaney and Timothy Bush built this market from the ground up with their own time and money, making it one of the few independent food markets in Hong Kong. Every vendor is hand selected by the duo, ensuring that the offerings focus solely on excellent, handcrafted food – from micro-brewed, hoppy beer to authentic, spicy burritos – sold by companies that are still under the radar. “Our hope is Harbour Artisanal will help spread the word about small businesses so Hongkongers remember to support them in order to protect and promote business diversity in this great city,” says Chaney. There’s no awkward standing at this market, as seating and tables are provided, allowing you to wine and dine in comfort, all while helping to prevent a conglomerate-dominated food industry in Hong Kong.
