State Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler finished the agricultural trade mission to China, speaking at a soybean conference in Guangzhou, China and then heading to Hong Kong to host a lunch for buyers of NC ag products.
After the luncheon and the tour of a Hong Kong supermarket that sells NC products, Troxler visited the Tai Kok Tsui Market.
The market takes up several floors of a new municipal building. One floor is devoted to meats and offers a “poultry boutique,” where you can pick out a live chicken, then wait while it is slaughtered and prepared for you to take home.
The second floor features fruits and vegetables, and the third floor has a cafe featuring meals prepared from market fare.
From there, it was time to prepare for the trip home.
