EnvironmentNight market

Shida night market was formerly a very popular night market given its unique shops, restaurants and fashionable clothing stores. However, as the area Shida night market occupied was close to National Taiwan Normal University, it has always been a place that many intellectuals called home. As a result, the neighborhood is decidedly more cultured than your typical neighborhood in Taipei. Due to resident complaints regarding the noise, trash and people the night market attracted to the area, as well as government rezoning efforts, Shida night market is now much smaller than it used to be.[4]

Even though it is much smaller, Shida night market still retains its unique feel compared to other night markets.[5]

TransportationEdit

The night market is accessible within walking distance north of Taipower Building Station of Taipei Metro.
