Seoul - Mangwon Market 망원시장

Located in Mapo area, Mangwon Market 망원시장 is a popular traditional market among the locals. The market not only carries a wide range of products, but they are also reasonably priced too! From local fresh produce to traditional snacks, this large-scale market is there to serve the densely populated neighbourhood.

During our recent trip to Seoul, we brought our parents to Mangwon market and had a good time there. From Korean strawberries to chestnut, she was choosing them with excitement. We spent some time in the market and went home with bags of trophy from the market. 

Tip: The price of fresh fruits is very competitive in the market. Head out of the market for good deals!

In addition, you can find local snacks at every corner of the market. We tried the kimbap outside the market and it was superb! Unlike the ones in the market, the kimbap was freshly made by order! With the generous serving size and quality ingredient used, it was one of the better ones. Sadly, we didn’t manage to try all the snacks in the market as we had a late breakfast. But we will be back for sure!

After our trip to the market, we visited café for a short break. There are several cafes in Mangwon market but we decide to visit our favourite café – Believer Café in Seoul. To be honest, there are many cafes but we only revisit the ones that are worth the money and calories. & Believer Café is definitely one of it.
