On The Commodity Trail
The Journey Of A Bargain Store Product From East To West
Yiwu, close enough to Shanghai, consists of Huangyuan Market and International Trade City. Each contains five smaller markets specialising in specific product areas. About 58,000 company booths dispalying about half a million products.

Unlike the Guangdong (Canton) Market, Yiwu allows buyers to take small orders - more like a supermarket than standard cash-and-carry.
