Night Market.

This summer we went to Seattle’s Night Market and Moon Festival held at Union Street Station. Unlike the night markets you find in Taiwan, Seattle’s was a mecca for food trucks and small/local shops to do business as they normally would during working hours or at a Farmer’s Market. Although it was fun, there was nothing very authentic about or different about the event.

On our trip, we were able to visit three authentic Taiwanese night markets: the famous Shilin Market in Taipei, a small market in Tainan, and Raohe Market in Taipei (up and coming – and popular for food). Although every market is different and has its own reputation, you will always find clothes, trinkets, art, pets (yes), food, games, toys, electronics and basically anything else you can really think of.

You’re not going to find any food trucks at these markets…
