Finally, all rumors can be squashed. Spoke to a few stall holders to get some information from them. Yes, block 85 Fengshan market will be closing in about a week or two for renovations. The whole upgrading process will take about 10 months.
The construction company in charge of building the temporary market has announced (see above letter) that they will be working late every night till the end of January to complete the project on time. I also spoke to the tau huay drink stall beside the dessert stall and she also confirmed that the hawker centre will be closed by the end of the month. A tailor who owns a shop in the market stated more specifically that her stall will close this Sunday, 22 January at 11am.
The temporary market is currently being constructed in front of block 84, Bedok north street 4; not that far away. As the temporary market looks quite small, it wouldn’t be possible to fit everyone in.
So far, I know that the tau huay drink stall won’t be moving into the temporary structure and the tekong seafood and Poh noodles won’t be coming back after the renovations.
And, the dessert stall will open in the temporary structure.
I shall just hope that the food prices will remain affordable and stuff after the renovations.
Feel free to comment on this post should there be stalls you know who won’t be coming back after the renovations, or stalls that won’t be moving into the temporary market.
