Any excuse for a marketTaiwan people love markets. The Taipei Expo Farmers' Market is a relatively new concept for Taiwan, buying direct from the producer. Buskers of varying quality entertain the shoppers. It's in the Expo Park. Take Exit One at the Yuanshan MRT Station, You can't miss the stadium. Weekends are best. The Expo Park takes in a big area. The idea for the Expo Park came from the Taipei Flora Exposition in 2010-2011. The Park also includes the Expo Dome and Expo Hall. If you cross Chung Shan North Road, you will find the Taipei Fine Arts Museum. Next door you will also find the Story House, an architectural fancy in mock Tudor style, one of Taipei's best loved structures.It was designed and built during the Japanese colonial era by a tea merchant, and is sometimes called "the Tea House."
Home of the Lin An Tai Historical House and MuseumAs parks go, this park is probably utilized the most by the locals as you can find lots of children’s outdoor equipment to play on, many statues or monuments and lots of practical recreational things. I thought it was interesting. The park, however, is the home of the Lin An Tai Historical House and Museum. The Lin An Tai House is a definite tourist destination so when you come to see it, hang out a bit and walk around the park.

My favorite placeI discovered this voice by accident, but I fell in love as soon I arrived. It’s located right outside is Exit 1 of the station. First, it is a sensory overload. There’s a lot going on. It has the feeling of a local fair/ farmers market/outdoor eating area/hangout area. Of all the places I visit it, it was by far the most diverse, with the most foreigners that I had seen as well as foreign food options. There were performances and kids dancing and families all over. As well as the standard vendors. Definitely worth checking out.

Shouldn’t Have ReturnedPassed through the park on a Saturday afternoon while on my way from the MRT to the Fine Arts Museum. The place was so pleasing, that I only got to the museum an hour later. There was a Farmers Market selling produce , probably to the locals. There was a very nice agglomeration of many booths selling all sorts of fast foods, as well as a few restaurants. There was music as well as street performers. And to top it all off, the park is located directly under the landing approach of Songshan Airport; a true bonus for airplane spotters. I was so impressed that a few hours later, as I was heading back to the metro, I stayed and ate enough that I was able to cross off dinner from my to-do list. I was left with a taste of “more”. And so, I returned at about 19:30 on Sunday night. The Farmers Market had shut down. The street performers were long gone, and even the frequency of the landing planes was considerably diminished. And the food booths? After a long weekend some of the vendors were out of various items on the menu. I wound up eating second best because of that. The five stars I had intended to give has been reduced due to the Sunday night experience. My advice is to go during the day on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. That way you will get the five star experience.
Interesting Foodie Game at the Expo ParkWent to go check out the park next to the old flower expo, saw this cool promotion going on. Free food by trying out different restaurants. Wanted to share with fellow travelers. The shop owner told me the promotions end 8/31.
