Gangneung Chung-Ang Traditional Market

Location: 21 Geumseong-ro, Chungang-dong, Gangneung-si, Gangwon-do

Open Hours: Mon-Sun 8:30-21:00

Most people might agree that one of the key terms related to traditional markets is “snacks”. Chung-Ang Traditional Market, located in Gangneung-si, offers a broad selection of scrumptious snacks to its visitors. To name just a few of the famous, there are Dakgangjeong (spicy chicken nuggets), Tteokgalbi (jumbo-size patties), and Ojingeo Sundae (squid sausages). The food is served in either paper cups or disposable plates, allowing visitors to enjoy their snacks while browsing the market. In addition, the market offers goods such as clothing, cooking utensils, and agricultural products. In order to fully experience the classic Korean marketplace, Chung-Ang Market is a must-visit for tourists in Gangneung. 

Dongmyo Flea Market
Location: Sungin 2(i)-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul
Open Hours: Mon-Sat 10:00-17:00, Sun 11:00-21:00
As more and more people find vintage style fashionable, thrift shopping has become a trend among the younger generations. The perfect place to go thrift shopping is Dongmyo Flea Market, where visitors can find piles of stylish vintage clothes laid out for sale. In fact, not a single piece of clothing is the same as the other. People carrying plastic bags filled with unique, second-hand clothes is a very common sight at Dongmyo. There is no other place like this where one can get a bagful of clothes at such a low price. Ever since its appearance in Infinite Challenge, a formerly popular Korean comedy show, Dongmyo began to attract consumers from various age groups, mainly in their 20s. Most importantly, visitors should make sure to bring cash, preferably in small change, because most of the street merchants do not accept cards.

Changsin-dong Stationery and Toy Market
Location: 455-15 Changsin-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul

Open Hours: Mon-Sun 9:00-17:30

The Stationery and Toy Market at Changsin-dong is a true heaven for both children and adults. The entire street is filled with different kinds of toys and stationery such as stuffed animals, mini cars, rubber balls, stickers, pencil sets, and more. The best part of toy shopping at Changsin-dong is that most products have a 20 to 30 percent discount compared to their original prices elsewhere. The target consumers vary in age groups – children, parents, grandparents, and “kidults”. “Kidult” is a term referring to adults who pursue interests that are perceived as suitable for children. With a growing number of adults who admit they are “kids at heart”, there are many grown-ups at the market who are shopping for themselves, not for children. Most certainly, a trip to Changsin-dong can bring back childhood memories for visitors.
