Namdaemun Market

Namdaemun Market is the largest and best general wholesale market in Korea. It is well-known for selling virtually every product imaginable, including clothing and textile products, everyday items, kitchen utensils, handicrafts, accessories, imported merchandise, food, miscellaneous articles, farm produce and fishery products, and much more to wholesale and retail customers nationwide at inexpensive prices.

Most of the shop and stall owners produce their own wares. The stores open at about 11:00 p.m. but the place really comes alive in the wee small hours around 3:00 a.m. when retailers from all over the country descend on the market to get the best wholesale deals. These unique scenes make Namdaemun Market one of the major tourist shopping destinations, embodying the customer-first attitude and the diligence of Koreans.
