About the event

Bangsan Market or "Baker's Alley" is your go-to for all things related to baking and cooking.  Here you may find baking ingredients and other useful items for your holiday baking. There are also lots of shops selling packaging materials and goods. Gwangjang Market is one of the oldest and largest traditional markets with stalls selling silk goods, linen bedding and other handmade goods.  It also has a few vintage clothing shops.  At the center of this huge market are several food stalls selling popular food such as Bindaetteok (mung bean pancakes), Boribap  (Rice and barley with vegetables) Eomukguk (Fish Cake Soup), Kimbap, (bite-size dried seaweed rolls and a must for any hiking excursion), Kalguksu (Korean knife-cut noodle soup) and Tteokbokki  (Spicy Rice Cakes).  We will finish at a Russian Cake Shop selling delicious layered honey cakes, Napoleon cakes and many more.  Tour ends at Dongdaemun Station or Dongdaemun Design Plaza Station.
