Island East Markets

Island East Markets must have been the happiest place in Hong Kong for the past two months. Initiated by Hong Kong based food writer and blogger Janice Leung and Vincent Poon, Managing Director of EVOLVE, the market has managed to capture the attention of both  eco-conscious consumers and mass media. I know it is again an untimely post as the market is now closed for the holidays. But a little birdy told me that it’ll come back by the end of January. So there’s something we can all look forward to!

I’ve only managed to take photos for two weeks of the market when I was volunteering as photographer. These are my personal highlights. Hope you like them! Do support eco-conscious business to make HK a better and healthier place to live.



Gorgeous Grassroot Pantry girls and their homemade organic jam. I can’t wait to try out their holiday menu!


Lovely Jocelyn of GOOD LUXE and her goodies, all with an ethnical story to tell! My favorite would be the Bird Project Soap. Read her Sassy That Girl interview here.


Delicious scones at Classified Hong Kong stand.


One of the most creative stands presented by A Boy Named Sue. Homemade sea salt cookies by Sam. I think Sam should totally start a side business just baking cookies and pies.


Co-founder of A Boy Named Sue and our beloved blogger Sam; Rina of Bite Communications; Co-founder Tania and intern Katz.


Homegrown Foods Hong Kong presents fresh veggies!


Didn’t get to try the yoghurt by Sour Times Dairy Company but I really like the idea. Contact them for wholesale orders.


Bathe to Basics Founder Gia and Creative Director/mascot Edmund. They make great soaps and do wonderful branding.


I must confess that I’m a sucker for all homemade soaps. I purchased the Basic No. 2 soap which contains no perfume. Believe it or not I’ve been using this soap for face and hair for a month now, and the result is beyond amazing. I’ve also tried out the Lavender, White Tea and Ginger Orange soap, great soaps but not recommended for face and hair.


The CArelendar project by Hong Kong Conservancy Association. Great concept and design. Your 2013 will look very green if you take one of these home!


Jennifer of Copa Cabbana and her festive display.


Beautifully decorated Teak.ha stand.


Spice Box Organics promised to have sumac in stock sometime soon! Now you know where to get the spices and herbs you need!


R.J. Asher a.k.a. the Ultimate Pie Guy of Tai Tai Pie Pies and his crew. Their Creamy Chicken, Back Bacon and Mushroom Pie is like heaven. You really can’t go wrong with them for house parties!


Artisan cupcakes at Blisscious.


My friend Hannah in A Boy Named Sue cardigan and cute H&M men’s bow tie. Look what she did to the hat display!
