Seomun Market Reviews
Most of the markets are actually quite similar. This market offered a s slice of their daily life and local food. The weather was chilly this Dec but we indulge in warm fish cake and hot broth... more »
Experience some Korean traditional market culture, street foods, place to bargain items and the whole experience is nice more »
This place is great for shopping, especially textiles and seafood. There are plenty of shops to make anything you desire: from curtains to traditional Korean garments. Hours of walking through the area will provide plenty of options. The clothing available here seemed like off-brand or knock-off. Also, most of the shops will not have clothing sized to fit Americans... Just a heads up. The best deals are usually found on the outlying streets of the market, away from the busy areas.
Many of the booths were closed still from the lunar new year (2/5-2/6 visited both days). The ones that were open had great deals. The night market was great with all the food.
