China Local Food Market (3) Street Market

This page is my last post for China local food market, with more local food seen from our street market. Plus a look at our morning street market selling breakfast.

There are cooked meat product availabe from the street market too. For example, here we have the roasted ducks, you can buy a quarter or a half. They can chop it for you.

The seasonings will be provided in one plastic bag. Because Hunan locals prefer the food having a strong flavour (taste), the seasoning is usually very hot and spicy. They won’t mix the seasoning with the meat, so you can decide how much you want to have.

The lady selling the spicy chicken even wears a microphone, so people can hear her voice and no one would miss her food stand.

China Local Food Market: Morning Market Selling Breakfast

Once finish shopping vegetables and fruits, cross the road, there is a small morning market, where food vendors sell the breakfast to people on their way to work place.

In our place, it is very normal that people get up in the morning, go to the local food market to buy breakfast. We may have breakfast in home, or have breakfast in the street food stall.

For people going to work, or high school students, they may just grab some breakfast from the street market, and bring the food to the work place to finish. This morning market is just made for this purpose.
