Jeju has an abundance of traditional markets which strike a balance between being useful to residents and accessible to tourists. Of these, we took a stroll through Dongmun Traditional Market, the largest permanent market in Jeju City.
The market itself sells everything people need. This includes fresh meat, fish, fruit, and more. There are also plenty of sections aimed at tourists. You can buy souvenirs such as Jeju candles, fridge magnets, hats, dolls and many other items.
And don’t forget the street food! There’s plenty to try, like crab in cream and cube-chopped pork BBQ. In the evenings, the area transforms into a night market with stalls selling a variety of foods and desserts.
Please note: During the COVID-19 pandemic, traveling to Jeju is problematic. In the meantime, we are highlighting some of the island’s attractions. We sincerely hope you will visit Jeju once it is safe to do so.
