December Highlights of the Expo Park Farmer’s Market

With the arrival of cold spells and the Christmas season, the Taipei Expo Park Farmer’s market will continue to serve local residents during the weekend of December.
On the weekend of December 1, the spotlight will be on dates grown in Tainan. Winter is the season for enjoying ripe dates. The green-colored fruit tasting fresh and crispy during each bite will only entice you to eat one after another. In addition to being a delicious fruit in its own right, dates can also be used to cook entrees such as pork shanks soup with sweet dates and stir-fry pork with green dates.
In the following weekend of December 8, visitors can enjoy a great opportunity to pick up oranges and black garlics from Yunlin County. Black garlic is created from garlic undergoing natural ageing, which results in reduced spicy taste. It is used for dish spices or can be enjoyed as a kind of snack.
For the weekends of December 15, December 22, and December 29, the Farmer’s Market will be holding the National Agricultural Produce Weekend. Furthermore, visitors both young and old can take part in the DIY sweet rice ball lessons at the “Winter Solstice Sweet Rice Ball Fun” event on December 22 and 23. They can even cook the sweet rice balls on the spot and enjoy hot soup amidst the cold winter breezes.
