Sengkang and Punggol residents will now enjoy a new market and food centre in the heart of Sengkang. It is named Kopitiam Square.
The modern market and food centre hopes to address the needs and preferences of the younger generation like the residents in Sengkang, including cashless payment technology (i.e. Kopitiam stored value card payment facilities), the first air-cleaning system that removes fish odour etc which will enhance the visits for the younger generation.
Sengkang’s 1st Market cum Food Centre aims to be the focal point in the Northeast precinct of Singapore and will be developed into a place for interaction and bonding amongst the residents as well. For instance, there are plans for cooking classes in the market, where young couples can come together and learn to cook with fresh produce procured from the market.
There are 60 food stalls offering a good range of local hawker fare including the “must have” chicken rice, bak kut teh, char kway teow, zichar, roti prata etc. Prices will stay competitive from $3 upwards. Enjoy savings when making payment with Premium Kopitiam Cards, every day, every time.
Construction started in June 2009 and was completed on 14 December 2009.
Unique Features at the new Market and Food Centre:
The first Mobile POS service in a food centre was launched at the new Food Centre where customers can pay with the Kopitiam Card. This is a handheld payment system which allows runners to be able to serve customers where they sit and pay with Singapore’s first dining stored value card – Kopitiam Card.
Rooftop Carpark Cashless Payment – drivers can also pay for carpark charges through the Kopitiam Card.
Stallholders can also be paid through the Kopitiam Cards for purchases.
This air cleaning system will be built in the air extraction duct and will be very useful in extracting smell like fish odours.
Hawkers and stallholders will wear standardized uniforms for a clean and neat professional look.
50% of the food stalls will be operating 24-hours.
The market stalls will operate till 9pm.
Circulars will be sent regularly to the residents to inform about upcoming activities and promotions being organised for the residents.
