We love Seomun Market. A heaven of cheap market food. We like everything we bought and sellers are super nice even though they don't speak English. You will enjoy it too hopefully!
It’s very big market for daily use proucts, kitchenwares, eatery utensils, clothings, healthcare products . Outside the building, there are food hawkers by street lsides, seasonal fruit, vegetables, noodle, nuts, etc.
One of the largest shops ~ where you can find anything you want from little cute candles to delicious big lobsters ~ All products are sold at affordable prices which is one of the best part of this night market. Side streets in market area feature a large number of outdoor food stalls with delicious traditional dishes.Shop owners was soooo nice, as I was speaking Korean with them they found it cute ~ and was giving me more stuff then I bought as a gift ^^
This market is one of the biggest night markets in Korea. There are hundreds of vendors selling food, drink and souvenirs along the long main street till 10PM! The atmosphere is lively and the food selling here are really tasty with reasonable price from 2,000~6,000 Won. The Onnuri coupon and market gift voucher from Korea Tourism Organization can be used here too! The market is clean and easy excess by public transportation, which is just right next to Seomun Market Subway station.
Seomun Market is full of various food courts, souvenir shops, street foods, cloth shops, etc. I was provided market gift vouchers & an onnuri gift card worth of ₩20, 000 by the Korea Tourism Organization & the Daegu Tourism Bureau. Since the food is very affordable at this night market, ₩20,000 is quite difficult to spend at once. You can buy any stuff from this market by using market gift vouchers or onnuri gift cards; they work here as cash. I opted for a super tasty cheese lobster, a spicy takoyaki, and a refreshing mango ade in a unique bottle. Be prepared to wait for around 10-15 minutes for your turn to come as the market serves delicious food, and the locals usually come here to satisfy their cravings at night. If you happen to be in Daegu, make sure to drop by this market.
