- Seoul Folk Flea Market
The Seoul Folk Flea Market sells specialty products from different regions in Korea. The market was formed by gathering the former shops and vendors of Hwanghakdong Flea Market, who lost their shop locations during the restoration of the Cheonggyecheon Stream. The Seoul Folk Flea Market offers everyday goods, souvenirs, and folk items that shed light on the past lifestyles of Koreans. The market is divided into specialized spaces for selling miscellaneous goods, clothing, antiques and crafts, local specialties, tourism souvenirs, and more. Visitors to the market can also enjoy a wide range of traditional Korean snacks and food at affordable prices.
