    I visited this local market near the outskirts of Chengdu, Sichuan, China, and found Chinese street food and the atmosphere to be mind blowing and exciting! It was truly an experience visiting this Chinese street market! So much food and Sichuan ingredients, so many flavours to try!
    Please like: facebook.com/foodrangin
    I visited this morning market on a Sunday morning in Chengdu at 8am with an empty stomach and money to blow with the goal of tasting foods and chatting with as many locals as possible. This is a true China experience. It was so busy, with so many people, so many things to buy and look at, tons of vegetables, meat, live chickens, live hens, live roosters, everything you could want really. Fresh handmade noodles, fresh Sichuan cold "liangbancai", and a huge meat market deli area with hanging pork and beef to choose from. All of the locals were friendly and talkative, although a bit surprised to see a foreigner walking through the area!
    If you're visiting China as a tourist, you'll definitely want to take a walk through a busy morning market like this. There are countless street foods to try and people to chat to (If you speak a little mandarin). This market was mind blowing!
    Rather than trying hot pot in Chengdu or hot pot in Chongqing, you could try some way cooler food in Chengdu at local market like this. This should be a top priority in my opinion!
    Chinese cuisine is so diverse, and I consider myself lucky to be able to live in Sichuan, eating Sichuan food everyday, tasting all the top Chinese foods to try whenever I want. I've decided to stay living in China for at least another 2 or 3 years to get the feel of it and eat as much as I can!
    The address of this market was:

      citi24 Irreverent. Trevor is probably the first foreigner ever meet to most of these people. Most of them don’t even have any idea where Canada is.
      USA is known to China significantly more than Canada. Chinese people usually don’t think of Canada at all.
      BTW most Chinese people think Donald Trump is a great man and Trudeau is a clown. #triggered

    The woman at the end who gave you the pork bones for free is a wonderful example of how good human beings can be. There are people like her in every corner of the world, from every racial background and from war torn nations to rich nations. You either have it in you or you don't. I wish her all the best in life
