How does the farmers market come out?

Erica Huang, a Taiwanese girl, founded this farmers' market in 2015.

She suffered from skin ailment when she was 24 years old working in Beijing.

"I had to take some medicine that was forbidden in many countries. Then I asked myself what made me like this. After many research, I finally learned that what you eat greatly influences your body," said Huang.

In order to improve her diet, she looked for food with no pesticides or additives and visited many ecological farms around Beijing and interviewed many experts.

In 2015, she quit her job and organized the farmers' market. "I was eager to build the relationship between farms and me just like neighbors, then the name, 'Farm to Neighbours' came to my mind when it started at that time," she recalls.

Huang believes the farmers' markets will soon gain popularity, even though hers is one of the few in Beijing.
