The first floor of each house was a shop.
There were people who made food, clothes, shoes, or other common household utensils or farming utensils and peddled their wares there.
Anything that could be used in the countryside was basically traded.

There were all kinds of stalls on the street between the houses on both sides.
Most of them were at the entrance of other shops.
The stall owners had to pay the stall fee.

Those who did not pay the stall fee were mostly villagers who planted vegetables, made their own things, or picked up things from the mountains.
They were placed on both sides and bought by people who needed them.

However, what made Gu Qingming frown was that not only were there potholes on the street but there was also some water in the potholes.
It was black and smelly.

There was also a place commonly known as snack street.
It sold the specialties of Shahe Town’s snacks.
In front of those stalls, there was a smelly ditch.
Everyone who passed by could not help but cover their noses.

What Gu Qingming did not understand was why this was a snack street when it was so smelly.

How could she eat in such a smelly place?

However, looking at the crowd sitting on both sides of the stall and ordering bowls of food, Gu Qingming fell silent again.

Grandma looked at Gu Qingming’s expression and said with a smile, “Do any of you want to eat here? If not, we’ll leave.”

“I don’t usually eat here!” Third Sister-in-law frowned and covered her nose.
She continued, “The smell here is too strong for me to eat!”

“Me too!” Second Sister-in-law also expressed, “This is our Shahe Town’s specialty, but no matter how delicious it is, I don’t want to eat it.”

The eldest sister-in-law smiled and said, “We have a capable second aunt at home.
It’s easy to eat anything.”

“Yes, yes!” Second Sister-in-law nodded and smiled.
“Granny knows how to make everything.
If we want to eat it, we’ll let Granny make it.
It’s clean and hygienic.
This taste is much better than here.”

Gu Qingming also covered her mouth and nose.
She looked at the black noodle-like thing on the stall and asked curiously, “What are they selling?”

“This is a potato vermicelli!” Grandma said.
“In the past, these were all made by hand.
The noodles were delicious and strong.
Now, they are all made by machines.
The taste is a little lacking.
Now, I’m eating potato vermicelli at this stall to fill my stomach.”

“Vermicelli?” Gu Qingming had never heard of it.

The eldest sister-in-law smiled and explained, “It’s sweet potato noodles.
We call them vermicelli here!”

“Oh, I see!” Gu Qingming asked.
“Is this delicious?”

“Mingming, when we get back, Second Aunt will make it for you to try,” Second Aunt said heartily.
“The hygiene here is not good at all.
Moreover, the environment here is really unpleasant.
I’ve lost my appetite just by smelling it!”

Second Aunt was a very clean and hygienic person.

No matter how busy she was, she would clean up the house, especially the kitchen.
It was as clean as new.

Second Aunt didn’t like to eat outside either.

As long as she wanted to eat something, she would go home and figure it out herself before making it.

Second Aunt was talented in cooking, so no matter what she did, the food she made tasted good.

Second Aunt continued, “When we get back, I’ll make all the famous dishes here for you to try.
When you crave something, Second Aunt will make it for you.”

“Alright, thank you, Second Aunt!”

“Haha, Mingming, we’re all family.
Don’t thank Second Aunt in the future.
Also, in the future, if you want to eat anything, just tell me.
Don’t stand on ceremony with me!”


“Mom, Mingming, let’s go.
It feels a little awkward to talk about food in such a smelly place!”
