Though widely regarded as a market for fabrics and clothing, for those in the know, Gwangjang Market (Korea's oldest covered market) is actually a frugal food-lovers paradise. This is where you can get an array of traditional (and at times very adventurous street and "peasant" foods, many not normally available in restaurants), for extraordinarily low prices. It is also slightly off the tourists' radar so you can expect to be eating shoulder to shoulder with locals. The best sellers are the massive mung bean pancakes (Bindaeduk), perfect for breakfast, they make a distinctly delicious Korean way to start the day.
Hours: Variable, though most stalls open from 9am to 6pm.
Address: 6-1 Yeji-dong
