What people are saying:

In Siming District, Xiamen Island, if you want to experience the lifestyle and diet of local people, the best way is to visit the local farmers' market. In recent years, with the publicity from the media, the eighth seafood market has gained a reputation. Many stalls have become Internet celebrity stalls that must punch cards in eight cities. The overall environment: usually speaking of bazaars, the basic impression is that they are related to "dirty, messy and poor", but the city of Xiamen is different. In a seafood market like eight cities, not only the roads are clean, no one littered, and even the vendors have good hygiene awareness. At the stalls, visitors are holding the peel packaging bags they want to discard, and they will also ask if they want to throw them away. I like this atmosphere, and I hope people all over the country will develop a good habit of not throwing away trash anywhere. Markets that are famous for seafood, of course, have some seafood processing businesses that mainly serve tourists. But some vendors are still doing local business as usual. In addition to seafood, there are some fruits and braised snacks on the market. There is a shop called Potshang Yijue, relying on this pot of salt-baked (quail) eggs, sold for 17 years, most of the customers are locals, weighing a small bag is 10 yuan, it tastes good!

Introduction

The Eighth Seafood Market can be considered the most popular vegetable market in Xiamen. Many people who come to Xiamen will visit here for food and drink. The early 8th seafood market is actually a place where many fishermen gather to do seafood business after entering Hong Kong. Since the 1920s and 1930s, Xiamen has become a fresh and cheap seafood distribution market. From the south to the north, a variety of fresh seafood products are collected. As long as you can name them, they can be found here.
