Dongmun Market is the largest permanent outdoor market in Jeju City and sells fresh agricultural, fisheries, and livestock products at low prices. As the center of commerce in Jeju City, this daily market is included as part of Olle Course No. 17. The Traditional Market was established after the liberation in 1945. Due to a big fire that broke out in March 1954, the whole market and the nearby area was reduced to ashes. The market then moved to its current location and kept the original name. As one of the most popular traditional markets in Jeju, Dongmun Market has served countless customers, selling diverse items at inexpensive prices.
