According to Beijing’s regular press conference on COVID-19 on June 15, the market volume of vegetables in temporary trading venues for the Xinfadi market increased to 1.8 times that of the day before.
Since business at the Xinfadi wholesale market was suspended, the number of temporary trading venues has increased from five to six. As conditions at these venues continue to improve, they are becoming better known, and trade there is expected to continue rising.
On June 15, the temporary trading venues sold 1,800 tons of vegetables, which was 1.8 times that of the previous day. A total of 414 trucks selling fruit and vegetables traded in these venues, of which 294 were selling vegetables, marking an almost twofold increase compared with June 13.
The market volume of vegetables in other major wholesale markets across the city has also increased rapidly, with the supply gap in vegetables caused by the suspension of Xinfadi market being quickly remedied. The volume of vegetables sold in Beijing’s seven major wholesale markets increased by 5.5% compared with the previous day.
