TGIF: Taiwan Market Scenes



I've got quite the little backlog of photos building up on my hard drive that I had forgotten until now about this set, from my Taiwan trip back in January. I was there in time for the big Chinese New Years' celebration, so the first few days of my visit were filled with numerous trips to the market to stock up on a Thanksgiving-like meal for the whole family. The lighting was horrific for photographs--overhead florescents galore--and the place was so jam-packed with people at times that I couldn't move my arms from my sides, but I find new marketplaces far too interesting not to share at least a few small glimpses.


I hope everyone has a great coming weekend. If you're around San Francisco on Saturday, make sure to drop by the Bay Area Food Bloggers' Bake Sale, benefiting the cause of ending childhood hunger.

  1. I grew up going to Indonesian markets, which are a similar mess of colour and wild produce. I miss the pungent smells, the rubbish on the ground, the bartering...thank you for transporting me back, for a minute. (:

  2. Gorgeous photographs!  And I clearly had both breakfast and desserts on the brain--I read the post initially as "Taiwan Market Scones."

  8. Loved the photos, the color pops.  I love visiting markets when I travel and I felt like I had a bit of a journey just while sipping my morning coffee, alas with no dessert for breakfast.
