This is the traditional stop for out-of-town shoppers. You can find stalls on the front side of the market selling local (and not so local) products such as preserved nutmeg, delicacies such as Tau San Pneah, Beh Teh Sor, dodol, and so on.

Campbell Street
Once the city's main shopping street, Campbell Street nowadays has degenerated into a textile wholesale hub. However, what you can also find here are shops selling Chinese medicinal herbs and preserved meats like bak kua and lap cheong.

Ghee Hiang and Him Heang
These are the two famous shops selling Chinese pastries. Both are now located along busy stretches of Burmah Road, though Ghee Hiang also has its main outlet at the junction of Macalister Road and Anson Road. In addition Ghee Hiang continues to operate out of its original shophouse along Beach Street.

Air Itam Village
The market area at the foot of Kek Lok Si Temple has shops selling local delicacies and oilment. The passageway towards Kek Lok Si is also lined with such shops.
