Gwangjang Market

Gwangjang Market




Gwangjang Market, one of the oldest traditional markets in Seoul, is popular with foreign visitors looking to sample some of the best Korean street foods. If you are looking for an authentic Korean cultural experience, along with some of the best bindaetteok in the city, then look no further. The market, first established in 1905, is today the oldest remaining daily market in Korea. Gwangjang might not be as well known as nearby Dongdaemun Market and Namdaemun Market, but that doesn’t stop the tens of thousands of visitors who flock here each day to experience a traditional market that shows a side of the city that can’t be found or replicated at some of other more modern, newer, and larger shopping centers and fashion malls found elsewhere in the city.
