    By making it easy to buy and sell second-hand goods among neighbors, “Green Markets” are places that promote the creation of a culture of sharing in local communities.

    Following in the footsteps of the Gwanghwamun Hope Sharing Flea Market, which is now Seoul’s largest seven-day market—attracting some 740,000 visitors in 2014 alone—and the Ttukseom Beautiful Flea Market, about 300 “Green Markets,” where secondhand goods can be bought and sold, will begin opening in April this year.
