The market was once the city's largest until plans were announced to demolish the area to make way for an office development. Vendors, who pay around 0.4 Yuan (0.06 USD) per square metre, according to state media, offer a variety of pigeon-fancying paraphernalia and other animals including rabbits, dogs, and crickets.
