Nan Men Market (Taipei, Taiwan)

Nan Men Market has many independent vendors selling all sorts of preserved and freshly cooked Chinese food.  If a food can be pickled, dried, salted, or otherwise preserved, it is probably sold at Nan Men market.  Dried scallops, shrimp, fish, pork jerky, mullet roe, and mango were on display, and these were just some of the items that I could recognize.  Others, I had no clue (I have captioned what I can below).  The sights, smells, and tastes are very different from a Western palate.  Definitely worthy of a visit to take lots of photos and buy gifts to bring back to unsuspecting folks at home.
