What You Can Expect

Small-Group Farmers’ Market Tour in Shanghai

Ginger and Spring Onions

Shanghai is known not only for its popular tourist attractions like the Bund and Yuyuan Garden, but it also has a vibrant community separate from the commercial and business areas of the city. Visit an authentic, hidden, open-air farmers’ market in Shanghai. With your experienced local guide, spend two hours walking around the market to see what local vendors sell on a daily basis – you may even learn a bargaining trick or two!

Discover what fruits are in season while walking through the vast area selling abundant produce. In some sections, see live animals like poultry, frogs, snakes and eel. Walk to the meat and fish departments to see the vast arrays of pork, beef and several types of fish. Other goods include different spices, rice, kitchenware, tea and much more. If you happen to walk by a vendor selling century egg (a duck, chicken or quail egg preserved for several weeks to months), don’t miss your chance to try out (own expense) this popular local Chinese delicacy!

Your knowledgeable tour guide, a Shanghai local, has over five years of experience in leading tours all over the city. Whether you choose to purchase any of the fresh goods or simply listen to your guide's stories and anecdotes, you will surely enjoy this Shanghai market experience.
