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 300 meters from the West Gate of the city, and was befittingly named Seomunsijang (West Gate Market). Although the market has grown from its small size, the names of the alleyways such as Hongdukkaejeon and Dakjeon remains unchanged.

The specialties of the current Seomun Market include fabric-related items like silk, satin, linen, cotton, knitted goods, and clothing. 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.

The signature dish of Seomun Night Market is Cup Makchang, small servings of Korea’s soul food makchang (beef intestines). Other popular dishes include mu tteokbokki, a unique take on a classic Korean dish with thinly sliced radish, and a remake of British fare shrimp and chips.
