Wide Variety of Food
Dec 2019 • Friends
This visit happened in May 2019. Great place to visit to try out the wide variety food!

We went on 2 occasions as certain stores/certain parts of the market were closed. There is an alley further down the to the centre of the market which sold a variety of food and drinks. Great for sharing and tasting as one doesn't have to go to multiple stores to tey the items

Narrow lanes, popular for breakfast
Nov 2019
We walked here for breakfast as it was near our hotel. The shop at the entrance had a queue and we joined in to sample the local food. Had to sit on a small table outside to have our breakfast. Price was cheap. Took a walk around the various alleys and explored this market. Plenty of street food here. We even came across a small temple inside.

Go with an empty stomach
Nov 2019
I will highly recommend to go with an empty stomach as there are just so many delicious food to try. You can start off with Wanki radish cake, FuChou noodles, Old Lai tea and then finish up with the ShanHe braised pork rice.

You will find very localized Taiwan food at a very cheap price. The taste and flavor may not be something very fantastic, but is the overall experience

Fantastic and clean traditional market!
Sep 2019 • Solo
One of my favorite markets in Taichung, named Taichung's Second Market, is easily accessible with public transport, surrounded by historical buildings and local businesses, and has a wonderful selection of Central Taiwanese snacks. From braised pork belly and radish cakes to Wontons and pig intestines, and several buffet-style (just point) food stalls and noodle shops, the food is cheap and fresh and authentic. There are also coffee and tea shops as well as boutiques, produce markets, and several butcher shops in and around the market.

I enjoyed my walk through this market at lunchtime yesterday. I gotta sit and enjoy some nice noodles cheap and then a cold mango slurpie drink. Just follow the locals but then there's some poor stores not doing much business and alot of stalls closed. Food and abit of other goods for sale.

Limited appeal / small market
Feb 2019
I’n not really sure what all the fuss is about - it is quite a small market, limited in what it sells and not as good as others I’ve been to in Taiwan. We visited at around 2pm on a Tuesday afternoon and most of the stalls were shut so maybe try visiting earlier on.

Quick Visit Will do.

The second market is close to the Taipei Main station and easily reached by bus. The famous food is right at the front entrance of the market at Zhongshan road. They sell the glutinous rice sausage, turnip cake. I personally didn’t rate the turnip cake but the sausage was good.

At the back the Japanese was excellent. We had 12 pieces of Salmon for 490NT which was good value as fresh and decent.

Elsewhere in the market towards the back near Taiwan Boulevard there are places to eat.

There are clothing shops, craft shop and other shops selling odd bits and pieces.

It’s worth a visit and have a meal here. They’re aren’t that many shops so after you eat you may move on.

It’s only a few KM away from the outer area near Map Garden bus stop and therefore you can catch a free bus within 10Km here. You can also walk to Yizhong street after you visit here.

Spotted good foods in the market!
Jun 2018 • Couples
Though the appearance of the market looks like some old and torn market, but the foods offered in the market were hidden gems!

Though most people recommended the stall that offered Glutinous Rice Sausage and Carrot cake for breakfast, I would recommend the stall further in, that offered the Braised Meat Noodle. Try that, it's nice!

Other than the foods, the rest of the market was actually nothing much then.
