Meet up with Young and Energetic Fubon Angels
Last year, Wanli crabs cooperated with Fubon Guardians, a local baseball team, to organize the “Wanli Crab Baseball Theme Day” which was highly praised. Therefore, we have invited Fubon Angels’ popular team members, Lemon and Dan-Dan, this year to serve as a one-day store manager and interact with vendors at Fuji Fish Market and the interim market of Guihou Fisherman’s Market on October 14 and 15 respectively. The two team members will support local fresh seafood with their youth and vitality. Meanwhile, they will live stream to show the audience around the fishing ports. To give back to the audience, they will give out 3 one-thousand-new-Taiwan-dollar coupons for the fish markets in a raffle! Additionally, people with the presentation of a proof for the raffle held on one of those two days can take a photo with the store managers and get a Wanli crab cup bag (50 bags only). So why not meet up with Fubon Angels at the fishing ports on autumn days?

Deputy Mayor Liu Ho-jan of New Taipei City indicates that Wanli crabs are in season in autumn, flower crabs, three-spotted crabs and stone crabs are delicious and distinctive. Additionally, Lan Lan Cat and Fubon Angels have been invited to the place of origin of Wanli crabs to fill the fishing ports and fish markets with lovely and youthful atmosphere. Moreover, he states that the mystery grab bags of Wanli crabs which are nearly half of the market price can only be purchased at the Yehliu holiday live crab market.
