Sustainable Shanghai – The Market
June 21, 11am – 6pm
Andaz Xintiandi, 88 Songshan Road, Shanghai
Enter Courtyard from Huangpi Nan Road and Taicang Road
We are very excited to launch Sustainable Shanghai – The Market on June 21, 2014 from 11am to 6pm at the courtyard of the Andaz Hotel. This new market connects the people of Shanghai to companies, brands, and farmers who support sustainable business practices.
Healthy living is a concern for many people in China, so Sustainable Shanghai – The Market is offering a solution; there will be the Shanghai farmer’s market with local and organic produce, environmentally-conscious brands and designers, Andaz executive chef and other foodies to prepare delicious locally sourced seasonal dishes, with nutrition tips and samples, activities for children, and plenty of opportunities to learn about ways to maintain a healthy lifestyle. This will attract Shanghai natives and expats alike who share a common interest in safe and sustainable lifestyles.
Andaz is Hyatt’s new collection of contemporary, 5 star boutique-inspired hotels, and the first Andaz in Asia is located in Xintiandi—a landmark entertainment area in the heart of downtown Shanghai. Andaz Xintiandi, Shanghai is a short walk to the Metro (Line 1 South Huangpi Road Station) and the prestigious Huai Hai Zhong Road, one of Shanghai’s premier shopping areas.
