  • There are a lot of cloth products and materials. There were so many that I couldn't buy anything. Because the thing made in Japan is cheaper in Nippori in Tokyo, I thought that it might be good that Hakka hanafu is like Taiwan. Many of the things made with Taiwanese patterns such as pouches and bags were chosen by many countries.

  • I stopped by when I went to Huahua Street. Is it a local market? Because there was a restroom inside, I used it.

  • A market in a large building next to Kasumi Castle Temple. On the 1st floor, there are mainly shops selling vegetables and fish, so you can see the daily life of the local area. When you go up to the 2f, you can hit and change and have a lot of fabric shops lined up. The contrast of 1F/2F is interesting.

  • There are a great variety of clothing materials at the 2nd floor and tailoring shops at the 3rd floor.
  • Kind of hard to find, but it is about 5 blocks north of Taipei central station, it is located on the second floor and beyond. There are plenty of shops to choose, but don't expect service here because most customers are taylors, I personally felt stupid to ask any question because its not my area of expertise.
  • It was a waste of time. There were few vendors selling fruit and vegetables, few food vendors.
  • If you’re looking for some unique fabrics, you can shop the 2nd floor where the fabric market is. There are so many shops, some have unique traditional Taiwanese/Hakka prints. You can also get clothing altered here. I wouldn’t buy any of the purses (some of the shops sell their handmade items) since you might be able to find similar items at the night/street markets.
  • This place is fantastic. Tons of fabric stalls are on the second floor right next to each other. All kind of fabrics can be found. Good quality. Love the Japanese printed fabrics. Pure linen is available. Zippers, felts, sewing and quilting threads in different colors are also available at the same floor. Went there couple of times to by some cotton fabrics for my small projects. Price is reasonable. Go to the 4th floor of this building if you are in need of any kind of tailoring. This market is closed on Sunday. Restroom available.
