Huichuan Outdoor Market
Huichuan 1st Road
Shopping Like a Zunyi NativeJust across the street from Zunyi Teacher's College (830 Shanghai Road), down two small pedestrian alleys, you'll find one of the foodie gems of Zunyi. There are other outdoor markets in town, but this one has just the right balance of chaos and cozy.
Here you'll find anything you could desire for cooking Guizhou food. If you're not looking to cook, you can sample several local dishes along the way--everything from fried dishes to dumplings, from mixian to mipi.
It's a rough and tumble kind of place, so just go with the flow. Matriarchs bartering with the vendors, motorbikes making their way through the crowd, students slurping down noodles--it's all part of the experience.
Bring your camera, but ask before you shoot. Zunyi folks are shy about being photographed without permission.
