Metropolitan Seoul’s representative general market, with a daily visitors of 400,000. The attraction of “there’s everything else except nothing!” here is as overwhelming as the number and amount of goods that fill the market.

Namdaemun Market, located between Myeong-dong and Seoul Station in Seoul and around Namchang-dong in Jung-gu, is a general market that represents Seoul along with Dongdaemun Market.

As the 600th anniversary festival of Namdaemun Market was held in 2014, the power of history and tradition that has continued for 600 years is unabated.

Shopping districts developed around Jongno in the Joseon Dynasty developed into Namdaemun and Dongdaemun markets, and since the 1980s, they have steadily gained popularity as they sold various daily items such as clothes and bowls on a large scale.

The alleyways in front of Hoehyeon Station on Seoul Subway Line 4 are filled with fresh products and fisheries products, as well as fashion products such as clothes and bags, plaything and toys, kitchen and living products, as well as ginseng, traditional crafts, jewelry, household appliances, imported cosmetics and processed foods, all across the country, and retail stores for 365 days.
