This is regarded as one of the best traditional markets in Korea. It's on the Gwangju subway line. You could spend hours browsing clothes and sampling food. Enjoy! Korean language skills will make it much a much easier experience.

I think the previous reviewer is talking about Art Street. There is nothing small about this market! It's well worth a wander and easily accessible via metro. Lots of the produce seems to be in bulk (I really wanted to buy a fig but couldn't get just one, only a whole tray) but other vendors are willing to deal with... More

Was a little disappointed, as this art area that was well publicized, I expected more stores. Although I still managed to find some things to purchase, I was thought there would be much more to this area. You won't need much time to go through the stores.

Local market with Interesting variety of foods (e.g. live chickens). Not for people with a sensitive smell sense! The clothing and other goods not interesting except from it's cheap and rare look.
