Market, Beijing (not Christmas dinner)

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.

A customer was walking around with a caged bird, but (thankfully) I did not notice a bird vendor.

Walking his pet, or is it dinner?

In addition to the stalls there was some food action taking place:

Corn on the cob, being husked before purchased.

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.
