Description

Graham Street

嘉咸街

Graham Street is a street in Hong Kong and location of Graham Street Market, one of the oldest markets in Victoria City.

The market is 160 years old and is Hong Kong's oldest continuously-operating street market. The street is narrow but allows a row of stalls on either sides and sells fresh food like seafood, vegetables, meats and other dry goods.

One of the earliest cinemas in Hong Kong, the Bizhao Dianying Yuan, opened in Graham Street in 1907. Queen Elizabeth II, accompanied by Governor Murray MacLehose, visited the Graham Street market on 5 May 1975 to speak with locals. Graham Street was featured in a scene from the 2001 film Rush Hour 2.

The Urban Renewal Authority is planning to redevelop Graham Street and Peel Street and demolish the market. This will affect over 37 buildings in the process.
