The 2015 Chinese yam season is here! Dubbed “Chinese Yam Generation,” the festival will kick-off in retro style at the Taipei Expo Farmers Market this weekend (November 28 and 29)!
The Department of Economic Development (DED) pointed out that the opening activities will introduce a rural atmosphere to the scene which features Shilin Yangmingshan Chinese yam delicacies, as well as games evoking nostalgia.
As a part of the festival, a series of Chinese yam-themed events will take place starting December.
The organizers will arrange one-day tours to yam fields in Yangmingshan on the following dates: December 3, 8, 10, and 15. A sales event/exhibition of yam products will be held at Jianguo Holiday Flower Market on December 5 and 6.
In addition, gourmands should not miss out on the opportunity to reserve a meal consisting of banquet-style yam dishes at Taipei Flower Village slated for December 12. Registration for the tour-and-feast package is available at http://shilin.naffic.org.tw/ (Chinese) starting 12 noon on November 25.
