Accidental Tourist- Thieves Market

Sungei Road Flea Market (aka Thieves Market) is another place I used to frequent cos there’s really quite a bit of "un-Singaporean" feel to it. Why is it called "Thieves market"? Well, back in the ol' days, it was reputedly a place where goods of unknown origins are sold. Now, it's more organised and stretches over 2-3 streets. My photo buddy tells me that the market used to be quite big (like over 2 football fields or 5-6 streets) during the previous financial crisis...
