Jeju Five Day Market is located in Jeju city near the airport. It’s always crowded with people.
It is one of the most historical and largest markets traditionally held every five days in Korea. It opens 2nd, 7th, 12th, 17th, 22nd, 27th days of every month from 7 AM to 6 PM.
It is said that the market originated at the end of the Joseon Dynasty ( 1392-1910 ) as a transaction point for “bobusang” or bag merchants in front of Gwandeokjeong, a historical pavilion. Then the market moved to Geonip-dong area in northern Jeju island. In 1950, the market took place at a refugee camp.
Even though it is a folk market, it also has fresh local produce and clothing.
