If you’re here for flowers only and would not like the distraction, Central Market’s dedicated Lunar New Year Flower Market offers golden fruits, narcissus, lucky bamboos, dragon claw bamboos, lilies, winter jasmines and many more auspicious blooms for your choosing. To really immerse you in the festive atmosphere, Central Market accentuates the space with a flourishing sea of 50 moth orchids, 500 New Year mandarin oranges and 20 peach flowers — your camera better be on stand-by.
