10 Of The Best Pasar Malams in Singapore Running Till End January 2023

Pasar Malams in Singapore are known to be a signature trademark of every Singaporean kid’s childhood growing up. Having been deprived from these pop-ups due to COVID, our neighbourhoods are now ready to be bustling with life again. 

We’ve scoured through the Internet and been out and about the trade fairs so that you don’t have to. Whether you are staying in the North, East or North-East, here are some Pasar Malams in Singapore we have decided are worth popping by:

Ongoing Pasar Malams

Highly raved as the biggest Pasar Malam in Singapore this year-end, hurry down to the Marsiling Bazaar to kop all the snacks you’ve been craving.

Apart from basic staples like Ramly burgers, vadai and Thai milk tea, this Pasar Malam also offers novel inventions such as cheesy corn cups, Korean corn dogs, grilled mochi, mango sago pomelo.

Besides, you can also walk off (some – keyword: some) calories with a couple of knick-knack stalls – some selling potted plants. For those coming with your kids, fret not – there are plenty of claw machines and nostalgic bazaar games that will keep your children enticed the whole way.

Date: Until 10 December

Location: Next to Woodlands MRT, Exit 3 and 4

2. Tampines Giant – Carpark Area

Reminiscing the vibes from your last escapade at JB? While this Pasar Malam may not be as big as the Woodlands bazaar for our Westies, the Easties can still count yourselves lucky.

With over 20 food stalls set up, there’ll be Western-fusion hot dogs, takoyakis, coconut and sugarcane juice bars, and even fresh durians available here! For your kids, carnival games and claw machines are once again available here – with prizes up for grabs.

Date: Until 4 December

Location: Tampines Giant Hypermart, Carpark

3. Rivervale Plaza – next to Rivervale Plaza

Nearest to Kangkar LRT or Sengkang MRT, access Rivervale’s pasar malam to get your fix of guilty indulgences. While it may not be huge, this bazaar spans approximately 20 stalls large – just right for you to takeaway some Teochew meat puffs, kebabs, sweet potato balls, and tutu kueh’s on your way home from work.

Date: Until 6 December

Location: 118 Rivervale Drive (Next to Rivervale Plaza & Rivervale Community Club)

4. New Upper Changi Road – near Bedok Town Square

From 2 December onwards, foodies around Bedok can keep their eyes peeled for a Pasar Malam coming round their alley. However, as this will only be a food-only fair, we recommend to certainly manage your expectations as it might not be a huge bazaar.

However, watch the space as there will be an upcoming CNY fair from 21 December, all through to the New Year in 2023.

Date: Until 11 December

Location: 208C New Upper Changi Road

Just one rule – remember to visit on an empty stomach!

Date: Until 11 December

Location: Blk 846 Yishun Ring Road (field beside Khatib MRT)

5. Serangoon – next to Boon Keng MRT

Springing up within the next week on 3 December, this Pasar Malam in Serangoon will only be staying in the vicinity for a good time – not a long time.

Date: Until 18 December

Location: Serangoon Road (next to Boon Keng MRT)
