Wet markets are a great place to shop for fresh food at excellent prices, although the smells and the melting ice water on the floor can be disconcerting. A wide range of fresh vegetables, fruit, meats, fish, spices or flowers can be bought.
Generally prices are much lower than they are in the supermarkets. While a shopper can barter, it may not be well received by some stallholders as goods are already priced very low.
All wet markets open early to the public; the Senoko Fishing Port Market at Woodlands Avenue opens after midnight at 01:00 (1 am) when the bulk of the customers are stallholders in other wet markets across the island.
Generally there will be less fresh fish and very little pork (all "local" pork comes from Malaysian farms and must be ferried in) on Mondays.
Note: Supermarkets will always have stock of fresh meats and fish as they import from all over the world. Many of the products in supermarkets are imported from Australia and New Zealand.
Most of the fresh food stalls and markets close around midday; none stay open all day.
