Street graffiti and photo-worthy bites for Easties
If there’s one thing Singaporeans love, it’s street markets with good food, groovy music, and pretty lights – everything the container pop-up market Market On Wheels is. Lucky for the East-siders, it’s back again once more for its 3rd edition at Bedok Mall from 12th October – 11th November!
Themed “Street Edition”, the containers are covered with impressive graffiti artworks that double as Instagrammable backdrops, and you can expect crowd-favourite food vendors with brand new menu offerings, retail selections, and as usual, live performances.
Tasty bites and beverages
Make a beeline for the photo-worthy pop-up market essentials like Egg Stop, Cereal Citizen, and KECha Singapore! As the saying goes, “pics or it didn’t happen”, so snap away at steaming hot toast sandwiches stuffed with toppings like tender beef slices, creamy scrambled eggs, and juicy bacon strips, or get your dose of edible cuteness in the form of a unicorn milkshake!
You can also relieve your childhood with a giant pastel-hued cotton candy from Cereal Citizen!
Other mouth-watering must-haves include Beef Bro’s blow-torched beef cubes, which you can enjoy either on its own or with their decadent mentaiko sauce, Shawarma’s hearty kebab wraps and salads, and The Juicy Way’s savoury counterpart – The Juicy Bites.
Boasting a revamped menu that features delicious new combo meals like a chunky Boston Lobster Roll, Kabayaki Unagi Mantou, and Mango Chicken Katsu Mantou, The Juicy Bites even has Truffle and Seaweed Fries for you to snack on!
Savour KECha’s latest drink additions like Thai Milk Tea, Sakura Milk Tea, and Butterscotch Beer with Vanilla Ice Cream, and end off your feast with a sweet dessert – artisanal ice cream from Annette Ice Cream! Made entirely with natural ingredients, flavours include interesting options like Coconut, Durian, and Bubble Gum.
Vintage loots, performances, and activities
When you’ve had your fill of tasty snacks, step into Vintagewknd and browse through racks of good quality vintage gems sourced from thrift shops all around the world! Priced affordably at about $17 – $35, there are also some premium selections are in mint conditions with a slightly higher price tag.
From shirts, skirts, dresses, and outerwear to men’s shirts and plus-sized items, you’ll definitely be able to find something that catches your eye!
An array of live performances will also be available on Fridays and Saturdays for you to enjoy, and while there aren’t any neon-lit signs this time, now’s the chance for you to shoot some edgy photos with their bright container walls decked out in graffiti!

The first pop-up market to be held outside Bedok Mall, Market On Wheels is a breath of fresh air in the heartlands.

Best of all, MOW x Bedok Mall is conveniently located right next to Bedok MRT station where you can escape the heat and relax in the mall in comfort after exploring the market.
