For those who enjoy visiting markets, this is a must! Lots to see and buy. Being Chinese myself, I am still amazed at the variety. Got things I cannot get in Hong Kong. Must visit again when I am next in Taiwan.

Nice & clean market where you can buy nuts and dried fruit (with free tasting). There are also stalls selling cooked food (1st floor). Tried the rice cake and it was good, denser than our local rice cakes (puto). Tried a very tasty beef noodle soup with tomatoes and egg at the food court at the 2nd floor.

I came in empty handed, but in less than an hour, my packages are close to 5 kilos! We have to return to our hotel to leave our shopping packages so... More

Nanmen Market is sort of a hybrid between a traditional Asian wet market and a modern supermarket. It sells everything you'd expect from a wet market, from fruits, meat, fish, vegetables, seafood, etc. to dried sundries, pre-cooked meals, local Taiwanese tidbits, etc., all within a clean, air-conditioned environment. Upper levels also have shops for clothing, and a food court. Prices... More

If you are looking for dried food and nuts (金华花腿,腊肠,梅子,糖莲子等等), this is the place to go. So many shops, so many choices. Value for money. There is also a wet market in the basement where locals go to to buy their everyday grocery.
