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.
You’ll find beautiful local eggs of all sizes, shapes, and colors, and flopping-fresh fish.
Above all, you’ll find the island’s most beautiful and diverse display of exotic tropical fruit, some varieties of which many visitors — even from other parts of China — have never seen before.
Expertly hand-butchered meat sits at another counter.
And local snails are always a Kulangsu delicacy.
Address: Close to 108 Longtou Road, Gulangyu Island, Siming District, Xiamen City, China
