China Wholesale Markets or Cities Where You Can Find Suppliers
Yiwu，Guangzhou and Shenzhen are three major trade cities in China. Every wholesale market in these trade cities attracts suppliers from the surrounding industry belts. For example, in the Yiwu market, you can find that the suppliers are from the southeast coastal areas(Yiwu is a city on the southeast coast of China).
Let me introduce you to the distribution of products in these wholesale markets:
Yiwu has the world’s largest wholesale market, which has more than 70,000 booths. The Yiwu wholesale market has five main districts, each with 3-4 floors. All the areas are connected and the layout of all the stores is quite standard.
For example, if you want to purchase toys, all the toy suppliers are gathered together in one area. It’s easy for you to compare the price and quality of products from several suppliers. For more details about Yiwu market, refer to my previous article (the most comprehensive introduction about Yiwu market on Google): Source Product in Yiwu Wholesale Market.

Shenzhen is a magical place where you can find a wide range of electronic products. Many trendy and cheap electronic products come from Shenzhen and its surrounding cities. For example, after the release of Apple’s new product-iWatch, many smartwatches with similar functions to this iWatch were instantly available in Shenzhen.
Huaqiangbei (Huaqiang North 华强北) of Shenzhen is China’s premier electronics hub. The electronic wholesale market is distributed in those different buildings. Seg Square is one of the most popular electronics markets.
But I have to say that the layout of the electronic wholesale market in Shenzhen is not as standardized as the Yiwu market. Stores for the same product aren’t clustered together and hence you may find it challenging and time-consuming to search different suppliers and compare their products. Furthermore, some of the Shenzhen suppliers are unstable. After you work with them once, you may not find them easily again.
For example, if you buy 1000 Bluetooth headsets in a booth in Huaqiang North Market and ship them to your country for reselling but later find out that 100 of them were defective after the sale. After half a year, you come to Shenzhen again and want to negotiate with suppliers about how to solve this quality problem. But chances are you’ll find a different supplier in the booth. This is a common situation in the wholesale markets of Shenzhen.

If you trade in clothing, bags or luggage, come to Guangzhou. Guangzhou has the largest clothing and luggage wholesale market in China, similar to the electronics wholesale market in Shenzhen. The wholesale market in Guangzhou is also spread all over Guangzhou. Below, I’ve sorted out 1-2 representative wholesale markets under each product category.
Of course, China is a labor-intensive production country. The above three cities are only the most popular trade cities in the industry belts. Different regions have different advantages, so each industry has its own industrial cluster. Below I will put the industrial clusters of each product industry on a table for your reference.
