Market in Gunpo (군포)

After hiking yesterday in Gunpo, I also briefly visited a market there. There were various stalls and shops selling fresh fruits, veggies, meat, seafood, etc. image This is similar to farmer’s markets in America. Korea does have supermarkets such as Homeplus, e-mart, and Lotte Mart that are similar to Wal-Mart or HyVee. However the Korean outdoor markets sell fresher foods for a much better price.

Also, because of the MERS outbreak in South Korea, it’s important to always wear a mask when using public transport. Of course, wash your hands frequently and cover your coughing/sneezing (which you should always do, even if there isn’t an outbreak). image Stay safe!
