Life In Korea: Dry Goods Outdoor Market

Seoul is known for its outdoor markets. There’s a fish market that literally spans five city blocks, plus other outdoor markets that focus on a specific genre of things to sell.

Motorcycles belch their way through the crowded alleys, the individual stalls all compete for your attention, and clusters of shoppers weave their way through dry goods that are piled high inside white styrofoam baskets.
