Corner of Aomen Lu and Changde Lu

The government caused widespread consternation when they disbanded the Friday Muslim market outside Huxi Mosque in spring last year, citing excessive smoke pollution from the chuan grills of barbecued lamb skewers.

Since then the market on the northernmost stretch of Changde Lu has made a quiet return and while it may not have quite recovered its former glory, there’s still plenty here to make a visit worthwhile – both in terms of the food (a mouthwatering range of seasonal delicacies are available to pair with the delicious grilled lamb) and the people watching (perhaps Shanghai’s biggest regular gathering of Uyghur people). Get there around 11am to see the vendors set up and then take your time touring the various stalls.
