In the Spring Festival shopping market, visitors can enjoy food, buy great local products, and enjoy shopping for nuts, fruits, sweets, tea, Spring Couplets, Chinese character "fu" (meaning blessing or happiness) decorations, and Hainan-style coconut-based foods. In the front of the Spring Couplets booth, calligraphers are writing beautiful good wishes to be hung at the entryway of each home for the New Year. These must-have items are popular gifts for friends and relatives.

In the special agricultural product market, there is a wide variety of produce from the area of Wenchang, including beef jerky from Jinshan, Zaopocu from Puqian, handmade brown sugar from Penglai, and Wenchang Chicken from Tanniu. Here, you can taste all the fresh, vibrant flavors of Wenchang.  

In the flower market, colorful flowers and kumquat trees are for sale. These plants symbolize good luck and happiness, and are popular home decor during Spring Festival.

In the food market, popular dishes from Wenchang and all over China are on offer, such as stinky tofu from Changsha,  Roujiamo (pork belly buns) and Liangpi (cold wheat noodles with chili and vinegar sauce) from Shaanxi, Chinese-style barbecue, and much more. What a great way to satisfy your hungry belly after a long day of shopping!
