    I heard someone talking about this yesterday.. I think they must have gone last Sunday. They said there was a group doing a really cool acapella version of Gangnam Style! They said they really enjoyed the whole vibe of Island East Markets :)

    Went by on the first day and definitely heading down again this Sunday.

    So pleased to hear that Island East will be returning in November - it's such a fantastic idea for both consumers & producers. About time Hong Kong had a regular event like this! :)

    "Little Bao" was a particular standout stall for me...those pork belly Baos were beyond moorish. So delicious!

    Few of my friends have tried with Island east booth and as they discussed they found out that all of them are charged with DIfferent prices from the organizers.
    People should be aware even they have listed out the standard price onlne
