Discover a Neighbourhood: Tongin Market


Tongin Market (Tasty road to popular Korean Banchan: side dishes)
Tongin market is a traditional market that is located just west of Gyeongbokgung.  It is a popular spot for tteokbokki, a chewy and spicy snack. 
The market was established in June, 1941 for Japanesse residents.  The Japanese occupied Korea frome 1910-1945.
Shoppers today can find over 75 stores and stalls off a main walkway.  One of the most charming things about this market is that you can exchange 5,000 won for a collection of old coins(Yeopjeon) and a lunch box.  You can then use these coins to buy foods to fill your lunch box.
Most items cost 1-2 coins and there is a huge variety of different foods.
Come and join us for a adventurous food discovery!
Since it is located in Seochon area, we plan to visit unique cafe for a coffee break.
