In the US, gone are the days of butchers for meat, bakers for bread and farmers for produce. Although cities in China also house supermarkets, butchers, bakers and farmers still exist. One of my favorite markets is the Bird and Flower Market, where locals go to purchase plants and pets. The most fascinating pet to us Americans is the cricket. The cricket market is huge in China, both in terms of the number of crickets bought and sold, as well as the size of the crickets themselves. Just check out the pictures below!
Come to China with Chow Fun Tours and check out the local markets!
