Lim Tua Tow Market was a famous wet market and hawker place in the 1950s and 1960s famed for its food. The road was named after a clever and wealthy Hokkien Landowner.

His son was Lim Teck Chye, probably a descendent of Lim Tua Tow, who was the Secretary of the Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Legislative Commisioner, 1919.

The market was demolished in the 1980s. The row of shophouses that face the market still exists mainly eateries along Teck Chye Terrace
