274 Wulumuqi Lu
Fresh and rare fruit, vegetables and herbs are the principal draws at this friendly fruit and veg market on Wulumuqi Lu, all far cheaper than the expat-baiting supermarkets in the area and, given the high turnover, probably fresher, too. There are cured meats(from 30RMB), cheeses, including fresh buffallo mozzarella (18RMB), and a gloriously messy amount of wine (from 45RMB). Amelia’s jams (from 45RMB) and Strictly Cookies are here, too.

Come in the week instead of at weekends though. It's not unheard of to queue for 15 minutes just to get in on a Saturday afternoon.
