Shunyuan Street
Sometimes known as Xingyuanli, this market is local living 101 for expats. Prices here are slightly higher but an overall better quality makes worthwhile one-stop shopping for frozen puff pastry, cheese, mushrooms and truffles, whole chickens, meyer lemons, numerous nuts and avocados. You can even pick up an electric hand mixer in a jam. Hard-to-find fresh herbs such as flat-leaf parsley and tarragon can be found. Tanks of live fish and seafood are clean and with good variety. Butchers hack up what you need and mince meat to order.
