Along with Ganggyeong and Pyeongyang Market, the Seomun Market makes up the three traditional markets of Daegu that were built during the Joseon dynasty. Although the market has grown from its previously smaller size to accommodate a greater number of shops and facilities, the atmosphere and the spirit of the place remains, for the most part, unchanged (as do the names of the old alleyways such as Dakjeon and Hongdukkaejeon).
The market is particularly famous for its assortment of fabric items including cotton, linen, silk, satin as well as clothing and knitted goods. However, you'll also find an excellent selection of handicrafts and silver products in the market as well as stalls selling high quality dried seafood items.
And if you happen to feel hungry, stop by the food stalls (mostly open at night) and check out some delicious Korean soul food such as makchang (made of beef intestines) or mu tteokbokki.Places nearby:
