We came with no presumptions other than the fact it was called a flea market, so we didn't expect to see anything in particular. We were both very pleasantly surprised to see so many film cameras from the early 1900s to mostly 1960-1980 era cameras....More

Such a contrast to the shopping malls of Seoul. Mostly vintage, aka used, clothes. Some street food, nothing too tasty (I love street food). Most of the stuff is of low quality and cheap. It’s still worth a walk through.

Huge selection of stalls and shops with everything vintage, plus tools, clothing, shoes as well. Wander the streets, many little cafes and restaurants to take a break from shopping. Friendly people always try to help with limited english.

I was there at eleven o'clock in the morning and most of the shops were not opened yet. There was an unpleasant smell in the market.

It's a great place if you like collecting old/antique stuff. Or if you want to find something unique as decoration for your shop/cafe/room. And it's located not far from Sinseoldong station.

Although the name is Seoul Folk Flea market, it doesn't really showcase anything Seoul or Korea. It is just a flea market selling old goods. Might be of some interest to some locals interested in antique or used items. It is not as good as...More
