(By Shu Chin/Jingmei)
“Jingmei” is a fascinating name that might originate
from “Jingwei”, the name of a wooden watering device. However, the
elder people told us “Jingmei” was conformed from the Taiwanese
pronunciation of “ChienWei”, meaning that people in the past picked
the fish one by one in the fish mart.
Jingmei, located in the southern part of Taipei, is
the joint point of Xindian Stream and Jingmei Stream. The geographic
position has made it a trade place for traders from Muzha、Xindian、Jhonghe、Gongguan.
From the interviews, we found one Chinese herb medicine store
running over 100 years in the Jingmei Market. It proves the history
of this ancient market.
