The street/alley that is behind the Lakeside Hotel has a great open air market where there is a little of everything for sale. Be sure to have a calculator with you to bargain-I never paid more than half what they were asking.
What to buy: I bought kids clothes and shoes. If I hadn't been loaded with the baby and diaper bag, I would have tried on some of the adult clothes and shoes, too. It looked like great deals on all of the stuff.
What to pay: $2-3 for a pair of shoes (kids), $5 for 2 piece outfits for kids.

Near the panda zoo is the stone market that sells amazing carvings from Shoshan stone, which is only found in Fujian province. It is a stone that comes in many colors with marble-like streaks. The carvings are very intricate. I bought chops for my husband and son there and we got to watch the carver at work.
