It’s hard to imagine there would be fabric shops on top of all the hustle and bustle of food stalls at the ground level. I recently brought a friend along to pick fabric for tote bags and his first remark upon arriving was, “How did you teleport us to the 80s?”
There are plenty of shops here! I always end up spending way too much time or too much money. There’s a POSB & UOB atm at the first floor of the market too. It is a good idea to always bargain if you are buying more than a yard/metre and scour the sale-bales that are displayed outside the stalls. Dress lightly as this place isn’t exactly air-conditioned.
