We are the student in Mrs Hossack's grade one class from Shanghai American School in Shanghai, China. We all know a lot about wet markets because we see them often. Here are what some of the children said about wet markets.
Maddy: My ayi buys our vegetables in wet markets. She gets them for good prices. Better than the grocery store.
Paulina: There is a wet market behind my compound. You can buy fruit and vegetables and flowers and plants and pets there.
Ben: On my bus ride we pass through a market on the road in the village. It makes the road very crowded.
Sean: You can't buy all the kinds of things from a store because they don't have all the choices.
Jonathan: I don't know if my mom goes to a store or a wet market.
Jasmine: The pictures in your slide show are very pretty. They make me hungry. You guys did a good job.
Towa: I saw some guys kill a chicken in the market near my apartment and they put it in hot water and took all the feathers off that chicken and then took it home to eat it.
Erik: My ayi buys food there. My mom buys food in a store.
Oliver: When we go to buy fruit the lady always gives me some fruits for free. I like peaches the best. We give that lady's son my old toys.
Mrs Hossack: I buy lots of fruit and vegetables in the village market outside my compound gates. The produce is always very fresh and inexpensive and in season locally.
You guys made a wonderful presentation!! Some of our children mentioned the word ayi. An ayi is a helper that works in families to help cook, shop, look after children and clean up. Ayi means auntie in English.
