Shida Night Market
Spreading through the alleys and lanes that branch off from the east side of Shida Road , just down the street from National Taiwan Normal University, is a grid of street stalls, boutiques, restaurants and family-run stores commonly known as the Shida night market . Though it may not be the largest or most famous of the city's night markets, it is perhaps the one that best encapsulates contemporary Taipei in all of its glitz, rapid change and frenetic activity.
Gongguan Night Market
Located near Gongguan MRT station, the Gongguan Night Market is Taipei city’s biggest night market in the South district. Its distinctive characteristic is that it is located in a business district combining with clothing and accessories stores, portrait studios, coffee shops, bookstores, tea houses, and a movie theater. Since it is close to the National Taiwan University, the majority of customers are students. All the stores and shops here are at reasonable prices in order to attract students.
Siyuan Market, which was set up in 1953, is the landmark of Gongguan business district. The first floor and second floor of the building are used as a market. There are around 200 venders selling lots of inexpensive delicacies and stacks. It’s also a great place to buy cheap and fresh vegetables, friut, meat and some yummy cookies and candies. The opening time: 7:00~20:00. It closes every Monday.
Taiwanese cuisine's mecca and home to the original (and world-renowned) Din Tai Fung restaurant (located along Xinyi Road), Yong Kang Street is a must visit destination for all travelers to Taipei City.
Housing restaurants and cafés that cater to all budgets, Yongkang Street and its neighboring lanes and alleys are home to more than 30 operations, not including night market carts and independent merchants that line the streets selling all types of food, including pan-Chinese cuisine, Korean, Japanese, Western, and unique fusion dishes unique to Yong Kang.

Lehua Night Market
Arguably one of the best night markets in New Taipei City and conveniently located just over the bridge from Taipei City proper in nearby Yonghe District, Lehua Night Market is a favorite of many residents of the city. Another not-really-for-tourists night market, Lehua has seemingly the perfect mix of restaurants, snack stalls, shopping, and entertainment, and is far wider and easier to navigate than other night markets.The market primarily sits on Yongping Road (永平路) and also runs along various side streets stretching off the main road.
Due to neighbour complaints, Lehua Night Market is in danger of being closed down. Visit now before it's too late!
