Essentials with JD # 341 **SUPERMARKET CLOSURES THIS SUNDAY**

IMG_6334

FYI – most major supermarkets will be closed this Sunday.

 

If you are new to Korea, every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month most of the major chain supermarkets i.e Emart, Homeplus, Lotte Mart etc close their doors to encourage everyone to shop from their local markets.

Most areas will have their own fresh market or 시장 where you can buy some seasonal greens from some lovely sellers who will most probably give you great discounts

If you want to go even further afield why not try Yangdong, Daein, Namgwangju, Sansu, Bongson, Maeil, Malbou, Mudeung or some of the others dotted all over the city!
