Textile vendors driven off nearby streets in the 1990s moved into this renovated market building (1906) with its bold red-and-white facade, four-corner towers and other Edwardian features. Now bolts of cloth flank the corridors of the 1st floor. Souvenir shops and the Grand Stage restaurant occupy the ground and top floors, and there are a couple of cafes inside the entrance.
