Singapore has some great "wet" markets, so called because the floors are usually wet from either melting ice, used to keep foods chilled, or from the general washing/cleaning, food and otherwise that goes on. Empress Market, or Farrer Market as it is also sometimes known, is perhaps the closest and easiest wet market for me to get to. It is also not so large or overwhelming as some of the others I have been to in Singapore.
All that said, every now and then I will go to the market because the choice is fabulous, the prices are much better than the Supermarket but mainly it is just interesting and colorful to look around.
I noticed that Suzanne had a black chicken in her case (cost S$5), so I asked her about it. She told me it was a naturally black chicken which had very good health properties. Anyone recovering from an illness, or those pregnant or nursing for example like to eat chicken soup made from the black chicken.
Further research revealed it is called a Silkie chicken, frequently found in China, India and Southeast Asia. They predominantly have white fluffy plumage and five toes compared to the usual four found on most chickens (not being a connoissieur of chicken feet, I did not know that). The flesh and bones are a dark blue color but their Chinese language name is wu gu ji, meaning "black boned chicken".
Check out a few more pictures I took at the market.
