Health concerns from food safety scares have compelled some Beijingers to buy imported food. Erica Huang wants to buck that trend by making safe, sustainable food and other products accessible to urban residents of Beijing.  

This episode features our conversation with Erica, the founder of Farm to Neighbors, a weekly market that brings together local farmers and other entrepreneurs to sell goods produced using sustainable and eco-friendly practices. We learn about the challenges of organic certification in China and about a wave of “new farmers” – young, educated entrepreneurs who want to ditch cities for farmland. 

The Farm to Neighbors market operates on Saturdays and Sundays from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Grand Summit in Liangmaqiao. You can learn more about F2N by following their WeChat account: farm2neighbors.
