Seomun Market, once known as ‘Daegu-Keun Market’, to denote its grand scale, is rich in history. Along with Pyeongyang Market and Ganggyeong Market, Seomun Market was one of the three main markets that sustained the shopping needs of citizens during the Joseon Dynasty. Based 300m from the former West Gate of the city, it earned its name of ‘Seomunsijang’ or ‘West Gate Market', which has since lived on its current name of today. Though the market has grown since then, the alleyways such as Hongdukkaejeon and Dakjeon still retain their old names. The specialties of the present-day Seomun Market include fabric-related items suc as silk, satin, linen, cotton, knitted goods, and clothing. Visitors to the market can also come across a broad selection of crafts, silver products and dried seafood.
