Markets are intrinsically linked to traditional life in the Chinese capital. Here, people rise early to visit their local street market, filling string shopping bags with everything from fresh seafood to the finest silks. But it isn’t just about shopping – visiting a market is a chance for people to gather and socialise, meeting friends old and new as they potter among the vendors.
