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.

Famous Food at Donam Jeil Market

Famous at this market is a restaurant introduced on SBS's Entertainment program for its tasty Soondae (pig intestines stuffed with various ingredients, including pork blood) and kimbab (seaweed sushi roll).

Taejo Potato 태조 감자국 is another popular restaurant for its potato soup, passed down for three generations.

Nearby Seongbukcheon Stream

After walking through the traditional market and experiencing its popular local food, you can walk straight towards the stream. This stream is particularly popular during spring for its cherry blossoms.
