Dragon fruit is back in the Singapore market after being shut down due to an emergency watermain breach on Tuesday.
A statement on the Dragon Fruit Market Singapore website said the market was reopened at about 4.30pm after the watermain was cleared by the authorities.
The statement added that vendors will be permitted to sell fruit and vegetables for six hours after the market closes, and customers will be given an additional 20 minutes to purchase their products.
The market, which had been closed for two days due a water main breach, is a popular destination for Dragon Fruit growers, who have been stocking up on the fruit in the market since the incident.
However, a spokesperson for the market said that the water main was not breached and that they are continuing to operate as normal.

source CryptoGamesNews.com article In the UK, the Dragon fruit industry is booming, with prices of the fruit soaring by 50 per cent since the breach in the water pipe.
The UK’s dragon fruit industry employs hundreds of workers and accounts for roughly two per cent of the UK’s total export earnings.
However, the strain on water resources caused by the breach is now being seen by the industry as a major blow.
The British dragon fruit producer and distributor, L’Empire Dragon Fruit, said that water was running low in the city’s water system and that the company had been unable to get supplies to the market, meaning that it was forced to shut down the market and reopen it at a later date.
L’Eire Dragon Fruit said it was planning to reopen the market to the public on Wednesday.
According to the company, water supply for the Dragon market is currently “good”, with the company expecting the market will be back to normal in the next few days.
The dragon fruit is the first of its kind in the UK and it is grown on the island of Mechelen, in the Bay of Bengal.
