Market in Hongdae

Market in Hongdae

Interested in going to a Market in Hongdae? There are 2!

One of our favorite things to do on a lazy Saturday or Sunday afternoon is a little shopping in Hongdae.

Located in the park near Hongik University is an eccentric little market in Hongdae, full of exotic jewelry, colorful paintings, beautiful wallets, journals that seem to scream “write something pensive in me!”,  and so much more.

And the best part is that everything is hand made! The artists proudly display their work in individual booths, and you can be assured that everything is made by hand.

These 2  markets take place on both Saturday and Sunday afternoons, starting at 1pm, from March until November. The Saturday market is called “Free Market,” and the Sunday market is called “Hope Market.” The Free Market on Saturdays displays a lot of clothing items, paintings, hats, shoes, and bags, while the Hope Market on Sundays is often filled with more accessories, jewelry, and craft items.

Hongdae’s Free Market and Hope Market are the perfect place to get a little shopping done. So grab a coffee, grab a friend, and buy some beautiful hand made items from some of Korea’s most creative artists!

  • How To Get There: Get off at Hongik Univ. Station (line 2) and take Exit 6, walk straight to the four-way intersection, make a left, continue until the end of the street, make a right, follow the uphill road on the right.
  • When To Go: Saturday and Sunday starting at 1:00pm, running from March to November.
