Storefront Of Fruit And Vegetable Shop

Many people came to this fruit store to buy in Bailan Market

There is no building in the market that claims to be the main body of the market, so it is not clear where the market is located. Probably, the market is a place where there are many shops selling daily necessities. So the place where I was walking may have been a little out of the market. There are shops on both sides of the street, but they are mostly restaurants of the same kind. And most of them were still closed.

In the midst of such a situation, I found a shop where people were gathering. Only here there is an air of the market. It was a fruit store. At first, I thought it was a grocery store, but the sign in front of the store says in large letters "fruit and vegetable store". The word "果菜" literally means fruits and vegetables. There were only fruits such as mangoes and apples on the shelves. In such a case, it is convenient if Chinese characters are written in traditional Chinese characters. I can understand the meaning of Chinese characters written in traditional Chinese characters. If the Chinese characters are written in simplified characters, I can't read them as I am not familiar with them.

At first glance, I can't tell if what is sold here is cheap or not. But the shop seems to be very popular with the locals, and there is no end in sight. I followed the locals' example and bought a few mangoes.
