Most people call it the Zhongda Fabric Market even though it is actually not a market but an area with at least 16 separate market buildings. In this area you cannot only find fabrics, but all kinds of materials and accessories needed for the clothing production. That’s why we call it the Zhongda Fabrics and Accessories Market Area.
It is one of the famous wholesale market areas in Guangzhou, where several wholesale markets are located close to each other.
In each market building there are hundreds or thousands of manufacturers and wholesalers, which offer fabrics and accessories like buttons, zipper, beads, rhinestones, ribbons, sew-on patterns and many more.
How to get there?
The Zhongda metro station can be reached from Guangzhou Railway Station or from Guangzhou South Railway Station via line 2 to Changgang and from there just two stations with line 8. From the Airport or from Guangzhou East Railway Station you can take line 3 and change to line 8 at Kecun. For more information take a look at the Guangzhou Subway Map.

Zhongda (中大) is the abbreviation for the nearby Sun Yat-sen University (中山大学， Zhongshan Daxue), which also gave the name to the metro station under Xingang West Road (Chinese: 新港西路) and Lixin Road (Chinese: 立新路) and the Zhongda bus station.

Zhongda Fabric Market Opening Hours
There are 16 independent market buildings and the shops might not follow the opening hours of the building, so not every shop will have the same opening hours.
This is a general guideline: The markets are open every day, Monday to Sunday (except for Chinese New Year). Most markets are open between 9:00 am and 6:00 pm.
We recommend you to visit the markets from the morning till the early afternoon. In the late afternoon and evening (4 to 7 pm) the area is really getting busy and there is always traffic jam on Ruikang Road, because hundreds of people want to leave with their cars and bikes full of fabric.
The Zhongda Fabric Market is located in Haizhu District of Guangzhou, south of the Sun Yat-Sen University. To go there use one of the following addresses:
