Luen Wo Hui or Luen Wo Market (Chinese: 聯和墟) is a market town east of Fanling in the New Territories of Hong Kong. It is located northeast of Fanling Station.


Luen Wo Hui was formerly a market founded by villages in the surrounding area and later became a town. The old market has now ceased to operate and only a few structures are left. A new indoor market to replace the pre-existing market was officially opened in 2002.[1]

New private housing estates have in the last 10 years been built north of the market. Across Sha Tau Kok Road are industrial buildings.
