Located in Datong, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Taipei, the Ningxia Night Market is a small but energetic market filled with tasty local food, welcoming street vendors, and relatively tame crowds. It’s the perfect place to spend the evening slipping between brightly lit stands sampling “little eats” like salty chicken, dry tofu and muachi. Locals say the longer the line the longer the tradition—meaning vendors with queues snaking into the streets have likely been around the longest. It’s best to arrive with an empty belly and a full wallet. While the traditional street food is definitely on the affordable side, a huge variety and flavors, scents and dishes mean even these “little eats” can become a big meal.
The market is located near Taipei Circle along Ningxia Road in the Datong area of the city.
