The Taipei Ningxia Night Market is one of the busiest and more traditional markets in the city.
Ningxia Night Market (寧夏夜市) is located in the heart of downtown Taipei on Ningxia Rd. between Nanjing W. Rd. and Mingshen W. Rd. It’s a very busy, traditional street night market much like many that existed across Taiwan 20 or more years ago.
An Older Night Market Has Come Back
