Beijing Markets to Shop for Artisanal Goods and Organic Produce

Each month our sister magazine beijingkids rounds up all the market, bazaar, and fair news that Beijing has to offer. Summer is proving to be a bit slow on the market scene, but there are still sellers and makers around this time of year to enjoy.

News from the market

  • One of our most trusted bakers and sellers Jennie’s Oven is leaving Beijing and will leave an empty space in our bellies. Her amazing baked goods have pleased many and she will be missed. Make sure to catch her at some of her last markets for a taste of home-baked goods.

  • Rumble in the Jumble is taking a short break during the month of July, but will be back with bells and whistles in August.

  • Time for some celebration as Farm to Neighbors (F2N) is turning three years old. One of our favorite ongoing markets, F2N has brought a lot of sellers to our attention over the past three years and always has a surprise up its sleeve in terms of new sellers at each event (see more details below).

  • Finally, a new face on the market scene is Emilie (pictured above), who makes and sells embroidered bags and clothes under the moniker Emilie Idea. Keep an eye for her at various markets across town.
