Daegu Seomun Market 서문시장

  • +82-53-256-6341
45, Keunjang-ro 26-gil, Jung-gu, Daegu

Seomun Market (formerly known as ‘Daegu-Keun Market’) of Daegu is steeped in history. Along with Pyeongyang Market and Ganggyeong Market, Seomun Market was one of the three main markets during the Joseon Dynasty. It is situated only 300m from the West Gate of the city, and is befittingly named ‘Seomunsijang’ or ‘West Gate Market.’ Though the market has grown from its small size, the historic names of the alleyways such as Hongdukkaejeon and Daekjeon have remained unchanged.

The specialties of the current Seomun Market include fabric-related items like silk, satin, linen, cotton, knitted goods, and men's and women's wear. However, visitors to the market will also find a decent selection of crafts, silver products and dried seafood. While still traditional in many respects, Seomun Market offers modern conveniences including a heating and cooling system and a large parking lot.
