As of September 21, the Beijing Xinfadi market has been fully operational for half a month. With the Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day approaching, we are now at the peak of the pre-holiday procurement period, and the volume of vehicles coming to the market to purchase goods has increased. The supply in the Market is sufficient and the varieties are abundant. It is reported that on September 20, the trading volume of fruit and vegetables in the market reached 23,800 tons, already 60%-70% of the volume before the Covid-19 outbreak. It is expected that sales will continue to rise as we ramp up towards the holidays.
Currently, there are about 70 types of fruit sold in this market, including more than 40 types of imported fruit and more than 80 types of vegetables, but there is still a difference with the number before the Covid-19 outbreak. According to Tong Wei, director of the Communications Department of the market, before the Covid-19 outbreak, Xinfadi had more than 260 vegetable varieties and 280 fruit varieties, including 110 types of imported fruit. "The difference is mainly reflected in the specialty vegetables. You can find all the vegetables in large demand here, and with the arrival of autumn, various imported fruits will also make their ways to Beijing."
Around the National Day, large volumes of autumn fruits will become available on the market, and autumn is also a season for high fruit consumption. With the two holidays approach, the volume of fruits on the market will further increase, the sales speed will speed up, and the supply and demand relationship will remain balanced. The recent price of agricultural products is at a high point and will remain a steady but declining trend in a later period.
