Mungyeong Traditional Market

Mungyeong Traditional Market

문경시장 입구

Mungyeong market was opened in the 1930s, during the Japanese occupation. It has more convenient transportation than other Eup and Myeon. As it had its own governance and was far from Jeomchon, the market was active, but now the activity has decreased as a result of the rural exodus. Various kinds of mountain greens collected in the deep mountains such as Juheulsan Mountain are common in the market, as are pine mushrooms, apples, bracken, wild plants and aralia shoots.
