Hours: 9:30 am-8 pm (closed Tue & Wed)

This old Taichung gem has been polished and put into a new setting on WuQuan West Road. Although the new Jade Market is less centrally-located than its previous WenXin Road site, it is now a more comfortable, wheelchair-accessible experience for visitors. By contrast to its hot, tightly-packed old home, the new location offers an impressive, multi-storied building complete with air-conditioning, parking lot, restrooms, elevators, drinks stands, and an exhibition space. The first floor retains the original look and feel with antique stalls and retail stores selling a variety of precious and semiprecious stones, ceramics, metalwork, wood carvings, crystals, jewelry, and other decorative trinkets. The second level presents much of the same, but also offers specialty snacks and teas, while the third level displays a selection of larger items from individual artists, fostering a gallery-like atmosphere with creative furniture, sculptures and pottery. A seed carving exhibition will be held here Aug. 25 to Sept. 25. --By Karen Sims, translated by Julie Chen
