A Glimpse of the morning market along the River from the terrain of Yanji's Christian Church.
The Yanji market is located at a covenient location, standing along one of the three main roads into the city and but a 100 meters or so from one of the two main bridges across the Yan River. Furthermore, with the main Christian Church of the City overlooking the market grounds, it is an easy place for local farmers and traders to reach, as well as a spot where the locals love to go.
Apart from the cheapest place to get your food and snacks, household utilities, farming tools and other vital products the Yanji Yanhe Market is also one of the few places where the towns elderly and families can meet and see eachother. With sons marying and members moving about, often families are dispersed over several of the surrounding villages, but all of them still often visit the market which gives a chance to pick up on family matters, eachothers stories and exchange worries, woes and good news.

With the Christian Church just a short walk up the road and the River, the market performs a crucial and central function for all average city citizens and many from the surroundings towns and villages. It is yet another place to get to meet the local people and get a feeling for the still largely rural style of life within what is offically a city.

A stroll through the Yan He market is easily combined with a stroll up to the Church and other nearby destinations. Further down the river, on the other side once can find the Yanji Zoo or Animal Park and the Yanji City Park.

Upscale shopping is not done anywhere near the Yan He market, but near and around the central Square of Times and it shopping street.
