Located in downtown Daegu, Seo-mun Market (“West Gate Market”) is one of the oldest traditional markets in Korea.

It’s a bit weather-beaten, and it sits in the literal shadow of a shiny new Hyundai Department Store.  Still, people come here for the best deals on everything from meat to clams to toys to socks.

Like all Korean markets, you’re sure to find a few surprises.  The other great thing is that haggling isn’t just an option — it’s expected of you.
