Guangzhou Jiangnan Fruit and Vegetable Wholesale Market
"We can have fresh vegetables from all around China staying in Guangzhou. The locals consume seven million kilograms of vegetables per day," Said Li Jiajian, Vice General Manager of Guangzhou Jiangnan Fruit and Vegetable Wholesale Market. This market tops the annual turnover across China.
"No meat is better than no vegetables." Just like drinking morning tea (having breakfast), Guangzhou people's preparation of vegetables for the dinning table is a habit. More than 70% of vegetables bought in Guangzhou are from the Jiangnan Fruit and Vegetable Wholesale Market.
More and more affluent Cantonese are turning into gourmands. A mushroom wholesale business boss said, "From 5RMB/g common mushrooms, to over 1,000RMB/g top-end mushrooms are both in great demand in Guangzhou markets."
New Zealand Kiwifruit, South America Red Grapes, Thailand Durian… These foreign fruits on Guangzhou people's favorite lists are mostly allocated from this wholesale market to Pearl River Delta and all of China. More than 1,000 tons of vegetables and fruits are imported or exported from here every day.
