Tai Po Market Station, located in Tai Po near Uptown Plaza, is a station on the East Rail Line in the New Territories East, Hong Kong. The station has three tracks and four platforms. Platform 1 is for northbound trains to border crossing stations at Lo Wu and Lok Ma Chau and platform 4 is for southbound trains to Kowloon while platforms 2 and 3 use the same track and is reserved for peak hour traffic.
The station went under major renovation which was completed in 2009. During the renovation, it remained open though most of the retail outlets were closed.
The Hong Kong Railway Museum is located a short distance from the Tai Po Market Station. The old Tai Po Market station building currently forms part of the museum. The museum also contains displays of a steam locomotive and carriages from older trains that were once used by the KCRC.
