Lovely place to visit during the weekends. It's near the Daan park station on the red line and just follow the main road to the crossing and you'll find the first market- flower market. The flower market is vibrant with many beautiful flowers, plants and necessities for the garden at low prices. You can also buy fresh goods. When walking... More

The Jade market is well beyond jade and it is a lovely experience. However, nothing has prices and most vendors did not seem overly tourist interested as most shopping seemed... More

Great market with cut flowers, potted flowers, bonsai, gardening accessories, organic produce, tea products etc. Very interesting.  Seems to have more flower varieties now in March than when I came in December period.  You could allocate up to 2 hours. Since we can't buy potted plants or flowers back, so we just bought stuff like small figurines and deco for plants,...

The Jianguo weekend market under the highway alongside Daan Park is a great experience. Actually three markets spread under the freeway. The longest is plants, flowers, garden supplies and like a garden show. At one end, the Jade market picks up, at the other, an arts market. All are great fun and good for people watching. Daan Park metro stop... More

This is one of our favourite activities when we visit Taipei. Do note that the market is only open on weekdays, and is best accessed via the Daan Forest metro station. Here you can find a wide variety of seasonal flowers, herbs and plants, as well as the pots, seeds and soils that you need. We especially enjoy looking at... More

This is a wonderful market! Clean and spacious and well lit despite being crowded. This is perhaps one of the best, large, temporary market places in the world. The only thing missing is food although there are plenty of herbs for any type of garden; window sill or otherwise. The plants and flowers take up about two thirds of the... More

Visited this market which was under a bridge. Part of it is a floral & plants market, many type of plants, tools for gardening, found some orchids species there. Is a relaxing and enjoying walk. We also walked to the jade market, selling jade, beads, stones, woods and old things. Genuine or not, we do not know, for a walk... More

This is a fascinating place to visit (along with the flower market) but buyer beware. There are many beautiful things to buy, but you better know your jade from imitation and you really need to speak Mandarin to bargain. However, there is still a lot to see and a lot to buy even if you are just a regular tourist.... More
