Experience Korean life as you visit South Korea's most popular open markets. A trip to the city's busiest marketplaces is great way to soak up the vibrant spirit of Seoul and shop for a variety of items such as herbal medicine, fresh fruit, textiles and semi-precious stones.

Visit the Gyeongdong Market, which is one of the largest herbal medicine and ginseng markets in South Korea. Supplying 70% the nation's herbal medicine ingredients, the market also sells agricultural products and fish. The market also has more than 1,000 related shops and oriental medical clinics in the area.

Your next stop would be at the oldest and largest wholesale market in Korea for marine and agricultural products. The Garak-dong Agricultural Market, which opened in 1985, is located at the Songpa-gu district of Seoul. The market offers independent sections for fresh fruits, vegetables, meat and fish in a large area spanning around 543,450 square meters.

Lastly, explore the vibrant Dongdaemun Market where you'll find an interesting mix of tradition and modernity. The market became the heart of the Korean textile industry in the 1970's and has further developed to become the center of Korea's wholesale and retail fashion industries. The Dongdaemun Shopping and Town Center Complex offers something for everyone. From materials such as burlap, faux, furs, linen and silk, to beads and precious stones for making jewelry.
