Visit South Korea: Gwangjang Market

We originally had plans to go to another market, but rain had discouraged the street hawkers, so the friendly South Korea visitor assistance team told us to check out the Gwangjang Market, since it was covered.

Gwangjang Market is a treat for the senses.  The sights, sounds, and smells can be quite overwhelming.

We saw many vendors selling everything from kim chee to fresh vegetables, donuts to packaged candies.

There were several makeshift tables where customers would sit and eat as a vendor cooked food right in front of them.

There were fish hanging from the ceiling, dried sausages, foods I couldn't recognize, and lots and lots and lots of Bindaettok, or mung bean pancakes.

I've never seen so many Hotteok in my life!  In one section of the market, every single vendor was offering Hotteok.  There were stacks of Hotteok and Hotteok being deep fried.  Some vendors fronted actual restaurants, one of which we actually dined in for dinner.

Gwangjang Market is a must-visit to get an authentic taste and view of Korean street food.
