If you are in Taiwan, a visit to a night market is a must see. It’s part of the culture. It’s Asian. It’s great bargains and fantastic food.
I finally made it to a night market with a camera and some patience on a not so steamy night. This is my neighborhood night market, Linjiang Street.
In full disclosure, I am a bad night market shopper. I am easily irritated by the crowds, the heat and the noise. I pay the asking price and don’t haggle much. I am also too shy to stick the camera in people’s face! So really the pictures do not do the night market justice. The market is so much more than just food! I hope you will enjoy them as I did – with much love to you!
Grilled stick food. Anything on a stick.
More grilled stick food. They labeled the food for those “Americans” like me: chicken necks, gizzards, hearts, legs, blood sausages, tofu, German sausages, Taiwanese sausages, bacon wrapped sausages, and shiitake mushrooms. Do you notice a theme here?
Fresh cut up fruits: wax apples, passion fruits, Taiwanese melons, guavas, cherry tomatoes with plum, sapodilla, white meat dragon fruits, watermelons, and pineapples. I LOVE this. I HEART these fruits.
The night market is located on Linjiang Street and Tonghua Street in the Daan District of Taipei City.
