An annual agricultural fair kicked off in Shanghai on Tuesday, providing abundant supplies for Spring Festival preparations from local residents, the local agricultural commission said.
This is the first time the show has been held online due to recent COVID-19 outbreaks in Shanghai and other parts of China.
The week-long fair, which runs until January 25, showcases around 190 companies and farmers and more than 300 agricultural products, including high-quality rice, vegetables, nuts and fruits.
The fair is accessible through Shanghai’s online agricultural product service platform, “yumizhixiang” (or “land of fish and rice”). Residents can search for “Fish and Rice Country” on WeChat or download the “Fish and Rice Country” app to purchase products, many of which are discounted.
As one of the favorite fruits of locals in the Spring Festival, premium strawberries and Qingpu Baihe strawberries are available at the fair.
Products at the fair come from all over China — such as nuts from Yunnan province, jujube from Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region and canned meat from Guangdong province — and are delivered to customers’ doorsteps.
Fresh flowers and 10 local commuter tour lines are also available on the platform.
