2/24 line Chegongzhuang West stop, (head south on Zhanlanguan Rd. until Fuchengmen where you head west until you see the big Santa statue and the market)
My visiting teacher, KD, is a Kennedy Center teacher (through BYU, teaching a a university here in Beijing) with her husband. She had the kids and I over for lunch (homemade pizza and brownies) and took us to a fun market near her. Tianyi Market is a wholesale market that does sell to small buyers. Some foreigners call it the Christmas market because of the giant Santa outside. KD gave the kids each some money and the kids brought their own and everyone got a stuffed animal and Princess Sparkley got new fake glasses.
The kids mostly stuck to the toy floor and especially loved all the knock off “Lego” brands and the realistic looking toy gun shops.
