Introducing Daegu's traditional Chilsung Market in bukgu

Today, I'm going to introduce you to the traditional market in Daegu.

Daegu's markets, which have been struggling with Corona 19 for some time, are regaining vitality with warmer weather.

It contains the scenery of the market that has survived the hard times and returned to daily life.

Chilsung Market
276-1 Chilsung-dong 1-ga, Buk-gu, Daegu
Chilsung General Market in Daegu is the largest traditional market in Daegu along with Seomun Market.



It's near Chilsung Market Station on Subway Line 1, so it's very accessible and convenient to visit. : )


Chilsung Market is composed of various markets to match the name of 'complex cultural commercial district'.

Thanks to the large signboards that describe what kind of products are professionally sold, it is guided to the market of your choice.

Inside the market, we were selling these fresh fruits and ingredients.


Inside the market, there are various restaurants such as barley rice and kalguksu, and not only the market merchants but also the customers who were shopping in the market were sitting down and eating.

This is Chilsung Market in Daegu, where you can enjoy a generous meal at a low price (Boribap: 3,500 won).

Not only did the merchants all wear masks, but they welcomed us with warm hearts.
Traditional markets with small alleys and small shops can always feel the warmth of the market.


Chilsung Night Market 


[way to go]
Follow the sign in front of Exit 1 of Chilsung Market Station

[operating time]
18:00 to 23:00 on weekdays, 24:00 on Fridays and Saturdays


Another pride of Chilsung Market, Chilsung Night Market, is located on Sinchon Street, which is right next to Chilsung Market.

It's easy to find Chilsung Market Station because of this sign that you can see right after exit 1.

The night market is literally a night market, so from 18:00 to 23:00 on weekdays,

Friday/Saturday will be open until 24:00, so please keep that in mind.

Chilsung Market's night market combines traditional and creative foods with a wide range of free markets. It is prepared to be a place where citizens can exchange various products as well as food!

There are about 300 tables and chairs where you can comfortably sit down and eat the food you bought at the stand, so it will be perfect for enjoying the cool breeze from Sinchon river.


If you go down to the night market, you can see another pillar sign, and you can see the harmony between the neon and the night sky with the crowds.

Quite a few people came to Chilsung Night Market:)

There are a variety of foods ranging from snacks, meals, drinks, desserts, and alcoholic beverages!


It was hard to get away because it smelled so good that it was difficult to choose from a variety of different foods as if we were in a different place!

On both sides of the line of stores, there was also a place to sit down and enjoy the food.

Looking at Sinchon river at the night market and enjoying a glass of beer, I think it will wash away the tiredness of the day.


And it also introduced 'Smart Order System', a non-face-to-face ordering service that is hard to find in regular night markets.

This smart order system allows the order to go to the store directly after ordering and paying by selecting the menu on the smartphone rather than lining up in front of the stand.

The aim is to minimize the spread of corona 19! : )

It is made based on the web so that you can access the Internet address (URL) or scan the QR code and choose the menu at the night market.


It is Chilsung Night Market where you can solve quizzes with your smartphone and get discount coupons for each store. So, it is a Chilsung Night Market with various fun factors prepared!

This is the night market you can see in Sinchon river.

The yellow tent is a place where you can sit down and enjoy the food, and you can enjoy the food while looking at the beautiful Sinchon river.

It would be nice to walk Sinchon river after a simple meal at the night market.

The lights of the night market grow on the river to make the sleep more beautiful.There is Sinchon in the center of Daegu, and Chilseong Market is in Sinchon.

Chilsung Market is a general market in the daytime, which is responsible for the table and life of Daegu people, and in the evening, a beer cup of the night market gives people the pleasure of living.

I hope all markets, including Chilsung Market in Daegu, will overcome difficult days and regain calm waves. : )

Daegu prop shop/ souvenir shop that you regret if you miss it

Today we stop by here and there to make our eyes and minds colorful.
I went to various souvenir shops and props shops in Daegu.


1. Between a prop shop and an independent bookstore; 'The Pollock'
- 62-5 1st floor, Gyeongsang Gamyeong 1-gil, Jung-gu, Daegu -
The first place I visited was 'The Pollock', an independent bookstore & prop shop hidden in an alley near Gyeongsang Gamyeong Park.
It is also popular as a photo zone for guests thanks to flowers and trees blooming throughout the hanok-style buildings and buildings.
The Pollock's building is divided into two houses, The Pollock, which sells props, books and coffee. It is made up of a studio called Bitwin Books. The studio was full of modern atmosphere that was as well organized as the exterior of the building.
Due to the beautiful exterior of the building, I saw many customers taking pictures in front of the building.
Even during the day, yellow lights and hanok-style buildings looked good together.
Please note that Mondays are closed and business hours are from 12 to 9 p.m.
The cute props you can see as soon as you enter the building, and the books of independent publications.
Well-organized books always make you feel comfortable.
When you come inside The Pollock, you'll find drinks on the counter, and you'll find a table where you can enjoy your books and drinks. I think it would be good to read the book you bought and have a cup of coffee. :)
The Pollock, which is not too much wood, goes well with the books with the terrier and jazz music.
I'm just here to look around, but the smell of fresh paper makes me take out a book without realizing it.
On one side of the wall inside, there are these pretty albums, mini-photos, postcards, and other interior/design props. The trendy illustrations were so pretty that I looked for a long time.

Design props that I almost bought because they were so cute. There was also a small collection of poems that came into my hands.
The Pollock has a cute space and an atmosphere that anyone who likes books would like.
If you are planning to visit Daegu, I recommend you visit there.



2. Full of cute dolls, 'Odefish'
- 62-5 1st floor, Gyeongsang Gamyeong 1-gil, Jung-gu, Daegu -
Second, I found Odfish with various character props.
It is located in an alley near the Jaille building in Dongseong-ro.
There were vines growing up on the sign with eyes as if it were representing the name of the store.
Signboards and windows that give you an exotic and unique atmosphere make it impossible for you to fit in. :)
A cute notice on the door of the entrance,
To prevent the spread of Corona 19, the store visit is only possible until 5:00-7:30 p.m. on weekdays.
Please note that you can inquire about the product through shopping mall and Kakao channel!
The dense, lovely world that unfolds inside the store.
Signature characters from various countries such as Japan, Switzerland, and the United States are gathered.
It's small, but there are plenty of props in here.
There are also sales items, so if you pay attention, you will be able to bring a pretty child at a relatively low price!
indispensable hand sanitizer
We can see many familiar characters in our eyes. There are so many kinds that I can't take my eyes off. It's all over the place, but it doesn't look messy at all.
That's the charm of a prop shop, right?
Odfish full of rare and pretty character products.
I was happy because I was able to get cute emotions and exotic feelings at the same time.
If you like lovely character props, please stop by and enjoy them only with your eyes!


3. Sensuous design props shop by young artists, 'Object'
- 62-3 Dalgubol-daero 447-gil, Jung-gu, Daegu.
The last place I visited was 'Object' in Samdeok-dong, which is full of sensuous design props.
The object is filled with design props made by young artists in Daegu.
Object that designs and sells daily necessities that are commonly used in everyday life with the sensitivity of each artist!
Inside the store, there are lots of cute design products such as notepads, stickers, postcards and accessories that can decorate your diary. There are many practical products such as cups and ballpoint pens, so it's a happy place to buy at least one.

From simple accessories to fancy and cute accessories, there are a lot of products with unique concepts that are distinct in their individuality, considering their various tastes.

We also sell eco bags, stickers, and cute illustration books.
There are many trendy and sophisticated products as they are unique to young artists.

Inside, there is a full-length mirror made of wood that goes well with the atmosphere of the store.
Guests from other regions also took many commemorative photos. :)

It was convenient to stop by Samdeok-dong because it was near famous restaurants and pretty cafes.
If you want to feel the trendy sensibility of young writers in Daegu,
I recommend you to visit Samdeok-dong's object!
