  • Information
    Introduction
    Gangwon-do's Jeongseon 5-Day Market is the place to go to if you would like to buy mountain herbs. The generosity of the market's citizens can be felt while exploring the grounds for its famous wild greens during spring, and medicinal herbs in the autumn.

    Jeongseon Market's specially featured product is the Goraengji, a vegetable that grows in mountainous regions or on plateaus at 500~700m above sea level. There are also many unique dishes in Gangwon-do that will catch your eye or whet your appetite. One delectable item is a dish made with buckwheat (or somtimes with corn flower) noodles, but be careful, as it is called Kotdeungchigi (hit the nose), because people would pull on the noodles too hard when eating and get hit in the nose. In order to experience the full atmosphere of the country market, you must try drinking a bowl of corn makgeolli (Korean wine), a specialty of Gangwon-do, and eating a bowl of Kotdeungchigi noodles while sitting on a mat.

    To get to the Jeongseon Market, take the Jeongseon 5-Day Market Train from Cheongnyangni Station, departing at 8:10am, for a 4hr ride to Jeongseon Station that arrives at around 12:00pm. Jeongseon Market is a 15min walk from Jeongseon Station.
