The market is closed early at night, hence the best time to pay a visit would be during day time. After we visited Yongdusan Park, we came here to see what can be brought back. Our first impression was 'wow', different zones with many stalls...More

There's a row of eomok stalls for people to taste test before purchase. Which is ideal to select soft yet chewy fish cakes. Some were just rubbery hard. Perhaps the winter temperatures had somewhat to do with the texture. Anyways we opted for Yeoja Eomuk...More

You can walk around and check food stalls, they offer some varieties of food. Locals and tourists will buy and eat next to the stall.

Some great stalls here offering a chance to buy some trinkets. Plenty of food options to explore for a quick snack.

This market is the real thing, no (or very little) tacky tourist junk. There are streets and streets of alleyways, corners and street stalls where you can see just how the Koreans shop and eat. Plan to spend a while here and probably buy nothing...More

As the market is in the form of individual stores. So it depends on individually. However they are usually opened from 9:00-22:00 and closed on first and third Sunday of the month.
