Long Tou Pub­lic Food Mar­ket (Long Tou Cai Shi Chang 龙头菜市场)

This col­or­ful food bazaar, which takes up a town block, is burst­ing with en­er­gy and speed. It’s par­adise for the home cook who has a fetish for the kind of tra­di­tion­al lo­cal pro­duce, dairy, meat, and fish you can on­ly get at a farmer’s mar­ket like this. Group tourists rarely wan­der through this mar­ket, but for the in­de­pen­dent food­ie, brows­ing through the Long Tou Food mar­ket is like trav­el­ing back in time to the lo­ca­vore fu­ture.
