Traditional style markets are a popular place for both young and old, local and foreigner to shop and explore. The Byeongbang Market which is in Byeongbang-Dong, Gyeyang-Gu, Incheon is a nice example of a little local market where people still do their weekly shopping.
In the winter it’s cold and in the summer it’s hot but it’s always open. Also unlikely the major supermarkets you can buy cheap (maybe not perfect) vegetables, fruits, fish, meat and so much more. This is also a nice place to practice speaking Korean and trying a little street food.

Location Map, Directions and Links
If you arrive at Imhak Station which is on the Incheon Subway Line, then take exit 4. Walk down the street until you reach the intersection (Lotteria Fast Food Restaurant), then turn left and then right. The market is in that area and is a little hidden but also difficult to miss.Strangely it’s on Byeongbangsijang Road which is right on the boarder between Imhak-Dong and Byeongbang-Dong.
