Macao’s longest operating fresh produce market, the Red Market – or Almirante Lacerda Municipal Market as it is formally known – is scheduled to reopen next Thursday after undergoing two years of renovation. That’s according to an announcement published by the Municipal Affairs Bureau. 

As part of the reopening process, around 120 vendors that sell seafood, fruits, vegetables and other fresh produce will be moving into the newly refurbished venue on 28 and 29 May. Stalls have been allocated by ballot. 

Other traders that originally did business around the market are set to return in the latter part of May.

Renovation of the market began in May 2022 and involved partial reconstruction of the building’s structure and floors to improve its carrying capacity. 

Various facilities have also been upgraded, with the authorities adding a new drainage and air-conditioning system and improved lighting. 

Built in 1935, the Red Market is one of Macao’s most beloved buildings, and part of daily life for residents of the Horta e Costa district, who depend on it for necessities.
