I go to this market often as it's across the street for my doctor's office. You can pretty much find what ever you're looking for there. It's usually for a decent price. The closer to closing time you go the more the vendors are willing to negoiate on prices.I go to this market often as it's across the street for... More

This is a good place to get reasonably priced produce and household goods. They also have beautiful hanboks, souvenirs, and fabric. It is fun to eat at the street stalls which have delicious food. However, the crowds and pushing are annoying and it is easy to get lost.

As with all countries in the Pacific Rim countries, Daegu has a weekend market. We started with some Korean pastry that we munched on as we wandered from stall to stall. It was hot and very flavorful. Visitors to this market can probably find anything they want. There were food stalls of all kinds: raw meat, fresh fish, pastry, drinks,... More

I went there alone by taxi, but I saw a big amount of busses, all stopping at the "main" entrance. There is also a train going there. For me as an european (austria) it was overwhelming on how little space you can sell you many things. If you are looking for something special you will definately need a guide who... More

I visited this market several years ago and wanted to return to see if it had changed. I was happy to see that it had not and there were exciting, unusual things to see around every corner. The first time, I spent the good part of a day exploring because there was so much to see and the booths inside... More

Not like other markets that open until late at night, this market close early. I went there about 9PM and I found nothing there. Not even one store. So it's better to have a visit in the morning or afternoon

I had big expectations before visiting this market, and it covers a huge area. However, it happens to be full of bric-a-brac that you can get everywhere, or fine Korean handicrafts that are very expensive or heavy to trasport. It was disappointing how many products are not Korean made. So many European and Chinese obejcts... Nevertheless, if you want to... More

It has so many things to offer: clothes, food, paper, luggage, gifts, pottery, jewelry,toys and fabrics. It was packed with so many goods it's hard to take it all in. The shop owners were friendly. The smells of some of the fish market areas were a bit overwhelming. Got a great deal on some sportswear. Enjoyed a lunch at a... More

Unless you'll be going to Seoul or Busan, Daegu's Seomun Market is a must see for anybody coming to Daegu. It's a great combination of all kinds of products for sale that will fit almost any need. The place recently has been remodeled with some new buildings. Anything from fruit, pots, pans, fabric, clothing, crafting, and so much more can... More
