Today, let me take you on a walk at the Labor Park Night Market 老公夜市, taking place every Monday, in an otherwise uneventful part of the city. I don’t recall seeing it mentionned on any travel guides or english blogs so I thought I would do it justice here.
I really like this night market for its balanced mix of food, shopping, and entertainment, and even if I only buy food, I always enjoy strolling through it. It has a reasonable size, so I’m often done with it in about 30-45 minutes or so, depending on if I linger at some stands or not. There are a lot of people, but not Fengjia crazy, it has a pleasant atmosphere, but less pleasant maybe is the lack of trash bins, so the ground is the only place to leave paper wrappings and such. A cleaning team does sweep by afterwards, so don’t feel so guilty. Also, if you are looking for restrooms, they’ll be located in the park, not far from the improvised music stage (see below).
This night market should appear in a movie or drama featuring Tiffany Hsu, I walked by on the night of the shooting, and oh boy, I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a giant professional video camera. It was kind of fun to see the shooting process, and I can’t wait to see the final production!
Enjoy the pictures and comments, and I apologize in advance for the subpar quality of the photos. Click on a picture to launch the carousel, WordPress fancy word for image gallery 🙂 . This is just a glimpse of the night market, and hopefully, it’ll entice you to come check it out in person.
