The relevant person in charge of the Municipal Bureau of Commerce said that in recent years, the number of new farmer’s markets has been decreasing progressively year by year. Renovation and upgrading on original farmer’s markets have become key tasks. Wuxi has always listed the work as a practical project of the Wuxi Municipal People’s Government for the people. During the "Twelfth Five-Year" plan and the "Thirteenth Five-Year" plan period, Wuxi has launched two rounds of renovation and upgrading projects on farmer's market, renovating 94 farmer's markets covering an area of 373,000 square meters and benefiting more than 1.8 million people. Next, Wuxi plans to conduct standard renovation on 51 farmer's markets within 3 years according to the Three-year Action Plan on Standardization and Renovation of Farmers' Market in Urban Area of "Beautiful Wuxi" (2020-2022). By the end of 2022, the standardization rate of farmer's markets in the urban area will reach 100%. After summarizing the results of the renovation and upgrading on farmer's markets in the previous stage, the Wuxi Municipal Bureau of Commerce further improved and refined the Regulations on Acceptance for Standardization and Upgrading of Farmer's Markets in the Urban Area in Wuxi City (Trial). It put forward clear standards on market decoration, market facilities and booth setting. While enhancing the level of hardware facilities, more attention has been paid to improve auxiliary facilities, service quality and intelligent element integration.
