Taipei 2012 - Dongmen Market at Xinyi Road
While wondering around the Daan District I came across this small local market at the junction of Xinyi Road and Jingshan Road. It is called Dongmen Market, consisting of a couple of small alleyways squeezed among shophouses. Many locals were doing their early morning shopping.
It is not unusual to find a jewelry shop among all the market stalls.
Like other markets I visited in Taipei, there are many stalls selling cooked food for takeaway. I came across this stall selling smoked and grilled meat. They all looked very enticing, so I ordered a slice of the smoked ham. It was scrumptious !
At the entrance of the market I bumped into these 3 monks. For all the time I was there, they must have moved only a few inches !
