Not only rural places in trouble in HK, tho this site doesn’t focus on the city.
A new website covers threats to the Central Street Market; has info, including:
The Central Street Market covers the area of Peel Street, Graham Street and Gage Street, and includes 130 licensed fixed pitch hawkers according to the records of the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD). Street markets have operated in the area since 1841 when it was called the Middle Bazaar.
There’s a petition you can sign.
