This traditional market covers a large area accessible through a warren of narrow streets and sells produce, fruit, clothing, kitchen wares, meat, fish and . . . well, just about anything else you may want. There are vendors selling a wide variety of prepared foods.

A really nice day market with loads of vegetables and uncooked / unprepared foods to make your own meal at home. It's not as crowded as many other markets but it's very cost. I'd recommend you to bring something to carry your items in and...More

Really fun place to browse and shop. Really traditional as can be given the current moderisation. Close to Chiang Kai Shek Memorial hall. New to Taipei? Studying Chinese and want a place to practice? .... well you've found it.
