About Traditional Markets in Pyeongtaek.

While grocery stores that will be familiar to expats abound in South Korea, traditional markets offer an exciting chance to experience the culture and food of the area. Pyeongtaek offers four traditional markets which are open seven days a week. In addition to these permanent markets, there are also Five Day Markets that happen on certain days. Sometimes both the permanent and temporary markets happen in the same areas and sometimes they are in different areas.

Three Reasons We Prefer Shopping at Traditional Markets

These aren’t the only reasons we love the markets but they certainly are on the top of our list.

  • Price is the biggest reason so shop at Traditional Markets. You can get a week’s worth of fresh fruits and veggies for about 1/2 the price of shopping at a big-box retail store.
  • Less packaging. If you bring your own bags and containers you can dramatically cut down on the amount of waste involved in your weekly shopping.
  • Seasonal foods. You can find absolutely stunning seasonal delights such as fruits, veggies, and mushrooms.
