On Saturday and Sunday mornings it turns into an outdoor market of sorts where peddlers line the already-narrow street with carts and wares spread out on blankets on the ground. The majority of the items appear to be antiques of some kind--old coins, Mao-era paraphernalia, polished rocks and wood carvings, jewelry, etc. How much of it is authentic nobody knows. Arts and crafts of various sorts are also sold here.
This area is a short walk from the center of downtown Jinhua, which is easily accessible by bus from campus.
