1 Gyeonggi Folk Market and Early Morning Market

Bus stop name | Pungmul Market

On the day that ends on the 2nd and 7th of every month, the oil field opens and there is a lot of hustle and bustle. From spring herbs to fresh seafood, there's nothing missing. You can also buy bright blouses, flowers, and trees for spring. Jujube, soba noodles, pig's feet, and teokgalbi are also delicious.

Across the street, there is an early morning market at Wonjucheonbyeon. It's a demon market that sparkles every day from April to December from 4 a.m. to 8 a.m. to 9 a.m., and then disappears. Farmers can buy fresh vegetables at a lower price than on the market because they directly trade agricultural products grown by farmers.

It is currently one of the 22 remaining water towers in Korea and was registered and managed as a modern cultural heritage in 2004.
