Jiali Jhongshan Public Market

Located in Jiali District, Jhongshan Market boasts a long history and now sits in the area’s most populous and bustling commercial center and across from Jintang Temple, a third class historic site. The market entrance, central aisle and signage all evoke the imagery of Jintang Temple’s Boat Burning Festival and of burdock, a traditional crop of the Jiali District, highlighting the inextricable links between the market and local culture. In 2016, Jhongshan Market participated in the model marketplace evaluation for the first time and was awarded 3-star certification. The market is full of a variety of goods including meats and produce, ready to eat meals, groceries and household products. The foods are fresh and fairly priced. Local delicacies abound and are sure to satisfy any visitor. The market, which is the most prosperous in the area, is always jam-packed with shoppers, so be prepared for a crowd especially on weekends.
