Modest Shop In Bailan Market

Article for sale being displayed on ground

The shopkeeper displayed his articles for sale on the ground

Shot at Bailan Market in Taipei, Taiwan.

Although this place was called a market, no building stood and no roof was here. Those who did business were selling on the edge of the street. It looked like a street market. The way of business varied. Some people placed a table and some people displayed the goods on the ground.

The man in this photo was the latter. He sat on a small chair and set out his articles for sale on the ground. Looking closer, one of his goods was bamboo sprout. Taiwanese people also like to eat them like Japanese. The bamboo sprouts he sold seemed to be fresh. They had soil and looked like they were cultivated just before.

However, I got a feeling of strangeness when I watched them. In Japan, they are in season in the spring. Yet it was the summer at that time. It is said that the season of bamboo sprouts is July and August in Taiwan.
