Western Market, situated at Des Voeux Road Central, was originally the old Western Market (North Block) built in 1906. The market originally had a South Block on Queen’s Road Central but the building was demolished in 1980.

Western Market is an Edwardian style building with a red brick exterior and a granite arch over its entrance. The Market ceased operation when Sheung Wan Municipal Building came into service in 1989. Western Market was declared a monument in 1990.

The building was redeveloped in 1991 to become a centre for traditional trades, arts and crafts. It also houses various shops selling handicrafts and fabric, as well as restaurants.
