Night markets are an essential part of Taiwanese culture and have been a longstanding tradition in the country. A trip to Taiwan would not be complete without a visit to one of these bustling markets. One of the most renowned night markets in Taipei is the Shilin Night Market (士林夜市), conveniently located near the Jiantan MRT station.

Shilin Night Market (士林夜市) is divided into two main sections. The first section is a multi-level building with a food court on the bottom floor and various stalls offering a wide array of food, fresh produce, souvenirs, clothes, and accessories. The food court is a lively hub of activity, offering an abundance of delicious options such as deep-fried chicken steaks, stir-fried cuttlefish, and oyster omelettes. The second section spans several blocks and is home to a variety of vendors selling local delicacies like Shilin big sausages, Shanghai pan-fried buns, and lemon aiyu jelly. After indulging in these delectable treats, visitors can explore the diverse range of shops offering an array of fashion and accessories.

While Shilin Night Market (士林夜市) is one of the largest in Taipei, it is not the preferred choice for most locals. The market is often crowded with tourists, and the food and prices may be disappointing. Additionally, the relocation of vendors indoors and the influx of Chinese tourists have led to a decline in variety and quality. For a more authentic experience and a wider selection of local cuisine, visitors may want to consider exploring Ningxia Night Market and Yansan Night Market. Those looking for a fashion night market should visit Shida Night Market. Happy shopping and dining!
