Farmer's Markets around the world

See also

Farmer’s Markets are universal. Whether you’re in a Los Angeles farmer’s market, a vegetable warehouse in South Florida or a street fair on the other side of the world, overall a market is a market.

Take Taichung, Taiwan for instance. Being in a completely different country, on the other side of the world, one would expect everything to be completely different, but truth be told Taichung seemed more like Downtown Los Angeles with a heavy Asian influence than a foreign land. The only real difference is the abundance of scooters and of course the language barrier.

Taichung is very first world and has the usual grocery stores even Costco, but what stood out the most were there version of a farmers market. Little Vegetable and fruit stands are position all over the city and look similar to a vender at any market in Los Angeles. The varieties of fruits and vegetables seem to go for miles and the prices were extremely reasonable.

Los Angeleans take avocados for granted and when one’s in a place without them it’s a hard adjustment. Clearly Taiwan doesn’t import from Mexico!

The one thing unique about these markets are the plethora of options to put in soups, stews, stir-fries, etc. From tofu to tempah, 20 different types of fish, fried, grilled and steamed dumplings, spring rolls, and eggrolls, and the list goes on.

So when traveling to a foreign land like Asia, don’t fret there are fresh veggies waiting just around the corner.
