The sound of firecrackers officially opened the domestic trade district in Shanghai Huizhan Fruit and Vegetable Market on the 18th of April, 2021.
The domestic trade district is designed for market stalls that sell carefully selected, premium domestic fruit. There are Driscoll's 'the finest berries' blueberries, Shiranui tangerines, Beibei pumpkins, and Yunnan grapes, to name but a few examples.
These carefully selected, premium domestic fruits are slightly more expensive than regular domestic fruits, but their product quality and flavor is at the same level as import fruits. Most of these premium fruits are also packaged in exquisite packing materials such as small design boxes. They are stacked for easy and convenient transport.
Although the price of premium domestic fruit is rather high, all the stalls offered discounts on the opening day, which attracted many buyers. Many stalls sold more than a shipping container of fruit in less than an hour - for example Driscoll's 'the finest berries' blueberries.
The domestic trade district of Shanghai Huizhan Fruit and Vegetable Market covers an area of more than 10,000 square meters and includes two halls with a total of 66 stalls. The area also offers space for nearly 200 shipping containers. There are already nearly 100 important traders from fruit production areas across the country who are active in the domestic trade district.
