Gaotian Market

On our first full day, we grabbed a few of the hotel bikes and headed out. Our first stop was the market! We heard that a town, Gaotian, about 3 km away was having their bi-monthly Wednesday market. We had to go! I love visiting markets in different countries because it represents the food culture of that region and the nation.

For such a small town, this market had some of the freshest and biggest vegetables! I'm glad we saw this market at the beginning of our trip because throughout our stay I was so excited to order vegetables. The locals here really live by the saying, "Grow local. Eat local." When you have food this fresh, you really don't find the desire to consume processed or adulterated foods. This is real food.
