Stopped at Mangwon market on a bike tour. A very interesting insight into how local Korean people live. The food was delicious and their speciality is fried chicken although they do have stalls for all manner of different types of food. It’s relatively inexpensive but I would recommend trying the spicy chicken before you buy a box as it is HOT!!

We went here on Monday, 24 Dec 2018. It is difficult to find this market. We have to walk about 10min from mangwon station and there is no sign to this market from mangwon exit. We have to ask several person to find this market. Just a local traditional market with limited foods. 3 Odeng = 2000 won ( cheaper than odeng in myeongdong @ 2000 won )

Interesting traditional Korean marketplace easily accessible by metro. This place has lots of delicious snacks and street food and you can see stalls selling hugh and tiny reddish, hugh cabbage and big red apples, etc.
Worth a visit 😊

A traditional market near Mangwon Station. Good to visit.
- Featured by media several times. This is popular even locating in a residential area.
- This is quite away from other touristic areas. But, we saw some foreign tourists.
- Very huge. The market continues even outside the arcade. Also, Mangwondong Worldcup Market is right across the road.
- Various places to try street foods and they are affordable. If you don't know what to try, have some at crowded places.

Walk within 5-10 minutes from subway station to this market and it's easy to find using Naver maps. During walks, there are some shop sell fruits or local food and products. Inside the market, there are stall who sell raw meat, vegetables, banchan (korean side dish), local food snack shop, etc.. well, it's a traditional market and you can find anything.

I bought strawberry for 3000 Won (big pack, 24 pcs). Strawberry is big and very sweet. I eat famous kalguksu (noodles with broth soup) which cost me 3500 Won with a very big portion. The restaurant is not too big that I have to queue for 5-8 minutes and 1 person 1 order. You can't share the meals even though it's very big for my size.

I bought odeng (fish cake) for 2000 Won 3 pcs and it's delicious also thick (not like the one I eat in Hongdae). Very chewy. I also bought rice with red bean which is very good also.

Oh my ... I do have a larger stomach so I can eat all of the food here ... hahahaha...

Although I love the Gwangjang Market, it is extremely busy and tourists tend to make walking through very difficult. This market has delicious food for much better prices. Short rib patties, mandu, famous fried chicken, croquettes, hotteok, fermented stingray, kalguksu and so much more ready-made food. There is even an Isaac's Toast without the busy line. He location is so good if you are near the world cup stadium or Hongdae area. Much better choice for those serious about the food scene!

Rather unusual name for a traditional local market ie Mangwondong Worldcup market. Where is the link to Worldcup? Anyway what is found here generally is similar to other local markets. Fresh & cooked food, groceries, vegs, etc, etc.

I love the array of food here. Warm, filling, satisfying. There is one lady selling octopus at the very end of the market (south area i think) is so nice to us. She should earn a credit

The market is a local community asset that the residents support in order to sustain it.

It was good to visit such a market rather than only see a market aimed at tourists.

Mangwon Market is a long sheltered street with shops at both sides selling all types of food. Unless you browsing at every stall and eating your way thru, one can cover the market in 1-2 hours. There are all types of food. There are cooked and raw food, meat, vegetables, seafood, fruits, marinated food.

We had a pork and chicken culet near end of the market and the meat was great.
