Market Atmosphere

If you are not ready to be overwhelmed by a big traditional market (like Namdaemun Market)​ and its typical big crowd, Donam Jeil Market will be a good local market to experience the Korean food culture.

 

It has quite a number of varied stores selling fruits, local snacks, vegetables, seafood, etc, with dry and relatively clean floor😌. All the items in the stores are neatly arranged in an organised and orderly manner.
