Happenings
Revitalization in Century Old Market, Joint Efforts in Fighting Epidemic

Supported by the Urban Renewal Authority (URA) and organized by the non-profit organization 2Gather, the new campaign, "Festive Graham" was launched on 5 December 2020 to promote the vibrancy of the century old Hong Kong market. Based on a co-creation project between six renowned local designers (Paul Lam, Eric Chan, Prudence Mak, Gary Tong, Gideon Lai and Clement Yick) and Graham Market operators, face masks and design premiums inspired by Graham Market are made and shared with public on this promotional campaign, and invite us all to “taste” again the special flavour of Graham Market.

 

“Festive Graham” is supported by more than 70 market operators, and over 250 students from five primary schools with their colour drawings. Their works are displayed at stall fronts in Graham Market, while a Pop Up Store (Shop M02) at H18 in Central is opening from 5 December till 2 January 2021.
