[Taipei] Located in the heart of Taipei’s posh Xinyi district, Commune A7 is a hipster outdoor food market with stalls located within shipping containers or trucks.
There are about 30 food containers and trucks, with some lifestyle pop up stores. You can consider this Taipei’s version of Seouls’ Common Ground or Bangkok’s Artbox Thailand, with live music performances held occasionally.
Expect to find a number of stands and food trucks which are set around a green area of faux grass, in which visitors can sit at regular outdoor picnic tables.
Some of eateries offer their own bar stools where you can enjoy your meal.
If you want to pick a time to come, Commune A7 looks amazing at night as there are a number of festive lights all around. Plenty of photo opportunities with a view of iconic Taipei 101 behind.
In terms of food, Commune A7 is home to dozens of regarded standalone restaurants including mini-versions of Shiang Shiang, Selfish Burger, Taihu, Glico, and Uraniam.
Some of the popular choices include Hong Kong style egglets at I Love Bow, ramen at the Japanese Wako, Lobster Roll at Lobster Bar, to Paella at PS Tapas stand.
In case you are after craft beers, make sure to visit Taihu’s Airstream bar that serves local craft beers on tap.
These are some of the food trucks available at Commune A7:
I Love Bow我愛豹豹
M One Café
Taihu Brewing 臺虎精釀
WAKO Japanese Restaurant and Bar和羹日本料理
Japan Shao Bao稍飽 炭烤焼肉麵包
Du Xiao Yue度小月擔仔麵
Keep in mind that most food stalls accept only cash and that it can get really hot during the day since there is little shade.
One of the reasons why people love this outdoor market is that the vendors designed their shops in a unique way with interesting seating arrangements.
However, the market seemed rather quiet relatively and lacked the bustling vibes of Seouls’ Common Ground. I think it could be a combination of lack of performances, mix of shops (not many instagrammable items and space to appeal to the youths), and slightly expensive food.
