Shuangcheng Street Night Market 雙城街夜市

Anchor point


Most of the stalls in Shuangcheng Street Night Market are old names in the business. Although the night market is not large scale, it is well organized with standard orange signboards. It is the first regional demonstration night market in Taipei City. Since there are many pubs nearby, foreign tourists also frequent this night market.

“Shuangcheng Street Food Court” has nearly a hundred stalls offering a variety of delicacies. Be it working class and students living nearby or tourists coming from afar, everyone can enjoy a hearty meal made of authentic Taiwanese delicacies. It is a gourmet food paradise that one should not miss!

    A Local Night Market


    Taipei is famous for night markets - both the famous ones like Shilin, Raohe, Ningxia and local ones within each neighborhood. Shuangcheng is a smaller, local night market which is just as vibrant as the famous ones. This night market was within walking distance in the area where I was staying. As I walked there, there were many small restaurants already lit up with many customers in them. This night market was also brightly lit up and you could see the bright lights from blocks away. The night market consisted or two rows of night market food carts offering all kinds of Taiwanese foods, with lots of tables and chairs for customers to sit and eat at. On either side of the carts there were stores and restaurants also selling goods and foods. About 7 pm, which is rush hour for Taipei, many locals were stopping at this market to pick up cooked foods to bring home for dinner. Many Taiwanese do not cook their own meals and find it much cheaper and easier to pick up cooked foods from local night markets like this one, for meals. I enjoyed looking at the excellent food offerings from each vendor, who specialized in their own type of foods and cooking. They were all busy and some had line ups at them even. Next to the market was a small park where a group of women were doing line dancing for exercise to music. This was also a playground for children during the day time, but since it was at night and very dark, there were not many children playing. This market area also had an adjacent, covered, tunnel like shopping area with many businesses which would be open during the day, but were closing at night. It would be fun to shop here first, then eat at the night market - to spend an afternoon and evening in this district.

    Good time despite the rainfall


    Shuangcheng Street Night Market was the one night market I had listed as an attraction. My friend and I walked around to find what was most appetizing. We ended up sharing two dishes at Zhe’s Food Shop as we sat under a tent as the rain came down. We headed down a few stalls to get a two pieces of Taiwanese Fried Chicken, which was pretty good. Then we finished off the night sharing a Bubble Milk Tea from Kebuke Tea Company. After visiting Shuangcheng Street Night Market, I would think there must be better night markets in Taipei, however we still had a good time here.

    Big crazy market


    Hustle and bustle of full on street market, so much good street food on offer. A very vibrant market with a marvellous array off goods, well worth a visit.

    Street food bonanza


    A smaller night market packed with street food stalls. Quite crowded, lots of interesting smells in the air, and a myriad of street food. It is only a short stretch, not that much to see, this night market is predominantly to eat.
