Moving to China

So, just after we moved to China, we decided we needed to figure out where to get our fresh fruit and veg; the local Lotte supermarket was way too expensive and the fruit in Carrefour just wasn’t really fresh enough. A short walk from our apartment, we found our local produce market and decided to share our favourite Sunday morning activity with you.

The market holds a range of fruit and veg as well as a small selection of meat. Compared to UK prices, the food is incredibly cheap and good quality. For example, in our first visit we purchased:

Mushrooms – 5 RMB

Bean sprouts – 2 RMB

Dragon fruit – 5 RMB

Chilies – 4 RMB

Bell Pepper x3 – 18 RMB

Ginger – 2 RMB

We even spotted some locals having a hair cut – costing just 8 RMB.

One of the best parts about the market is a food stall that sells a JianBing- a traditional Chinese breakfast that translates to fried pancake.
