ABC Market, what a name to give to a market!

Do you know your alphabets? A B C...

There's this market and food centre in Singapore that's called ABC. Any guess why? Is it because no one wanted to come out with a name and someone uttered ABC, and it got stuck? haha...



Well, we asked one of the stall holders there and the truth is revealed. This plot of land where the market is, used to be a brewery that produced ABC Stout. Now you know :-)

There's good food at the ABC Market, hop on a cab and tell the cabby, ABC Market! View my daily food blog to see what's serving today at the Singapura Daily Makan (Food) Photo.

u sure the cab uncle will know how to bring me to ABC market ? I had a few bad experiences with the newer cab operators in sg. i had to practically tell them "turn right, go straight, turn left...etc etc"...:(
but again... think most(if not all) cab drivers gulp down ABC stout, right ?

How interesting to read the comments. ABC stands for so many things. :-)

Archipelago Brewery Company was the original name for Asia Pacific Brewery. They now have a little microbrewery outfit at Circular Road behind Boat Quay.
