There’s no better place to experience the wealth of influences that make up Macau’s unique East meets West culinary traditions than at one of its local food markets. Culture Trip takes a look at some of the best.

1. Red Market


This historic wet market is one of Macau’s most famous. Housed in an impressive colonial red brick building, the market is a good place to experience the authentic side of Macau. There are three busy floors selling some of the freshest produce in town from seafood, to poultry, beef, pork, vegetables and other sundries. It’s a maze of different food stalls and a sensory overload of different sights, flavours and aromas.

Red Market is a great place to sniff out a good bargain and try all sorts of local street specialties and snacks. It offers a quintessential Asian wet market experience and is a great introduction to Macau’s unique culinary culture, which blends both Chinese and Portuguese traditions.
