More than just wet markets

Came across this article discussing the successful activites held in wet markets, such as

[...] the department has run large-scale Chinese New Year functions and thematic workshops on Chinese tea art, Chinese soups, meat cooking and food hygiene. Other promotion activities, including lucky draws, photo-taking and menu design contests, as well as roving exhibitions, have also been held.

Wet markets are so much cleaner than they use to be. Air-conditioned, washed at least daily. It does not stink as much, and this is summer! I remember back in the days (when I was 12 years old or so), my only memory was holding my nose while mom brought me into the market to get fresh meat and fish (and veg). But nowadays, trying to convince my fiancé and his dad that they use to be very dirty was quiet difficult to describe. Considering that we ate brekkie there a few mornings!
