Heavily patronised by expats, this covered market is clean and dry, so there’s no chance of tripping on slippery floors or of coming away with your clothes reeking of fish. For a wet market, it’s not very wet at all. Visit early for dibs on a fair range of vegetables and fruits including hard-to-find ones like Australian mango, artichoke and passion fruit. The stalls are also well-stocked with lentils, fresh tofu, raw honey and other pantry essentials. The market is neatly compartmentalised compared to most others in town: The ground floor features fresh items like meats, vegetables, wet food and flowers while the first floor houses tailors, baking supply stores, specialised organic shops and a noteworthy food court. The non-halal section on the lower ground floor features pork of all cuts in belly, shank and shoulder. TTDI market has been operating for over 25 years, and after narrowly escaping a teardown due to MRT developments, it looks set to stay. Take note that some vendors don't operate on Mondays.
