Enjoy the best of Hong Kong island life with the new Food X Home store by Market Place in Discovery Bay, a one stop shop for all your needs
The humming heart of any neighbourhood has to be the local food market. This is especially true in some of Hong Kong’s more remote island communities, like Discovery Bay, which is why the opening of the new Market Place in Discovery Bay North Plaza is an exciting new development. An upgrade in every sense of the word, the new store offers a wide variety of carefully selected fresh produce, seasonal ingredients and wines carefully sourced from around the world. Sustainably sourced seafood, hormone-free frozen meat and frozen vegetarian food are also available for purchase. Given the uniquely international audience of Discovery Bay residents, the store also offers a special focus on Western cuisine, healthy food, and pet supplies, for a complete one stop shopping experience. The 17,373-square-feet space also includes the world’s first IKEA Close to You concept. What more could you need?
Just follow your nose
Whether or not a stop on the store was on your to-do list, the delicious aroma of fresh coffee and yeasty baked bread wafting on the breeze will lure you into the store to check out the exclusive bread and pastries from Bread Pantry—the bakery brand by celebrated pastry chef Grégoire Michaud from Bakehouse. Bakehouse has been a fan favourite in Hong Kong since its launch in 2018, and Market Place shares Chef Michaud’s commitment to using premium natural ingredients and is excited to bring his retail brand, Bread Pantry, to the new Discovery Bay branch. Be sure to add the signature fresh-out-of-the-oven buttery croissants to your shopping cart, along with three special pastry selections—Cinnamon Apple Turnover, Cheese Pretzel and Vanilla Raisin Danish—that Chef Michaud has created especially for the Market Place in Discovery Bay.
Planning a picnic for an afternoon on the Discovery Bay beach? Pick up some tender sourdough loaves and stone-baked artisanal rolls, along with sliced ham and cheese (available at the adjacent deli counter), and perhaps, a tub of freshly made nut butter for extra oomph. Need more snacks? The Discovery Bay store, in collaboration with New Zealand healthy snacks brand, Alison’s Pantry, is home to a self-service “Nuts Bar.” Health-conscious snackers can choose from the over 40 different nut varieties, in preferred quantities, according to personal preferences. Don’t miss the freshly made crunchy and smooth peanut and almond butters, which is an unbeatable treat for both you and your furbaby puppy. That’s right, Alison’s Pantry also makes nutritious snacks for pets—available at the “Treat Bar”—so you can share the joy with your four-legged friends. Adhering to the brand’s sustainable concept, paper bags available at the nuts bar are made from 100% pure paper to encourage recycling and upcycling.
