This is an awesome market with a wide variety of foods and clothing, as well as other items. The street food is really awesome and very authentic. Definitely a must do while in Daegu. more »
This place is great for shopping, especially textiles and seafood. There are plenty of shops to make anything you desire: from curtains to traditional Korean garments. Hours of walking through the area will provide plenty of options. The clothing available here seemed like off-brand or knock-off. Also, most of the shops will not have clothing sized to fit Americans... Just a heads up. The best deals are usually found on the outlying streets of the market, away from the busy areas.
Many of the booths were closed still from the lunar new year (2/5-2/6 visited both days). The ones that were open had great deals. The night market was great with all the food.
