每逢農曆年,初一至初三皆會有攤販於各區人流旺的地方擺攤,出售的物品五花八門,涵蓋生活種種需要。有衣服、飾品、玩具、電器、廚具、藥物、收藏品、茶葉、裝飾品,以及各種各樣的雜物。擺攤之人多不打算賺大錢,只是借機發個新年財,又或是打無用之物出售予有用的人。物品價格甚廉,吸引不少人淘寶掃平貨。我就以80元購得一個皇家香港警察的鉈錶、100元購得三餅普洱茶,飲落應該有十年八載、50元購得五張CD、2元購得一個三位萬能插蘇。

地攤不只止出售的物品多元化,出售物品的人亦十分多元化。既有上年紀的阿叔阿嬸、亦有年輕的少男少女,甚至是兒童;既有華人,亦有南亞裔人。

香港的印度/巴基斯坦/尼泊爾人口約六萬,平時鮮有看見他們的蹤影,然而在新年期間他們卻在北河街、福華街一帶擺攤,買的賣的都以南亞裔人為主(在這一帶逛街的多是菲傭、印傭),走在這裡,你會發現南亞人都以廣東話叫賣,識得講「埋尼睇埋尼揀」、「廿蚊對,唔買就走寶」,他們長相與我們不同,但與我們並沒有很大的差異,都是香港人,都說廣東話。

食環署雖然嚴厲打擊熟食檔販,然而政府卻沒有打擊地攤,使得現代人亦能體會趁墟的熱鬧情況。在這個新年其間,我走訪了屯門、上水、以及深水埗的攤檔,記錄所售的物品及出售的人。香港目前還沒有人較為全面地紀錄新年墟市,希望這一輯相可以拋磚引玉,使得更多人留意/研究墟市,即使不研究,也要多逛多買,才能使得墟市不成為歷史。這輯相的照片全在屯門、深水埗拍輯。我去之時尚早,上水的攤檔多不營業,所賣的物品種類不多,故不收錄在內。

 

擺攤者

這個相簿基本上是整輯相的精華,既見擺賣之人,亦見所賣之物。其他相簿可見擺賣之物,卻少見擺賣之人。

這輯相同樣是擺攤者,但這是一班頗為特別的人。他們應是學生,將不用之物拿到攤檔出售。告示曰:「二手物品;唔收現金;只抖利是;恭喜發財」。估計物品價格多少隨心,只欲將物品出售。家中若有很多不再用得着的衣服,不妨效法他們,拎到墟市出售予有用的人。

買家

這輯相是在墟市購物的的人,與擺攤的人一樣各色其式。

政府

食環署、警察皆默許墟市的存在,故即使巡至此地亦不會驅趕檔主。
