Not 5 minutes from our Beijing hotel was a morning market. It wasn’t until our last day in Beijing that we had any free time to have a look. I was wishing I had somewhere to cook! The market was clean, the food very fresh, and the vendors and buyers were obviously quite used to the foreigners from the nearby hotel gawking at the produce.
It was rare to see a moustache in China!
A customer was walking around with a caged bird, but (thankfully) I did not notice a bird vendor.
In addition to the stalls there was some food action taking place:
And my favourite, but very hard to photograph, the noodle maker.
Whether you are enjoying sushi, a vegetarian roast, noodles, corn/beans/rice, or turkey and all the trimmings, I hope you are having a loving and joyful Christmas.
