List of markets in South Korea
Major cities in South Korea typically have several traditional markets, each with vendors selling a wide variety of goods including fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, breads, clothing, textiles, handicrafts, souvenirs, and Korean traditional medicinal items. The Korean word for market is sijang (Korean: 시장) and traditional street markets are called jaerae sijang (Korean: 재래시장) or jeontong sijang (Korean: 전통시장). The market space commonly includes permanent restaurants, pop-up restaurants and food stalls (pojangmacha, Korean: 포장마차, lit. 'covered wagon') that sell traditional Korean cuisine and street food. The Small Enterprise and Market Service (previously the Agency for Traditional Market Administration) is responsible for improving the condition of the country's traditional markets with the goal of developing them into prominent tourist attractions.
