Daehwajang Market is located at an about –15-minute drive distance from PyeongChang. To get to PyeongChang, you have to get out of PyeongChang IC on Yeongdong Expressway.
Daehwajang Market which is held on a date ending the 4 and 9 days of every month dates back to the Joseon Dynasty(1392-1910) and in those days, the marketplace was crowded with merchants and shoppers as shown in the saying of “See the Daehwajang Market outside the Dongdaemun Gate in Seoul.”
