    Fellow citizens, go to the market!

    On May 23, the Jamsugyo Bridge will be cleared of traffic for the hosting of a farmer’s market, selling all kinds of agricultural and fishery products directly from the farmers and fishermen.

    You could pick up some Korean beef and deodeok from Hoengseong, ganoderma mushrooms from Pyeongchang, beans and grains from Danyang, dried spring greens from Gangwondo, and other delicious, eco-friendly agricultural and fishery products, including rice, cabbage, meat, fruit, vegetables, and processed foods, at up to 20 percent below standard market prices.

    In particular, Korean beef from Hoengseong, Daegwallyeong, and Gapyeong will be sold in a special vehicle in Banpo Hangang Park near Jamsugyo Bridge at very affordable prices, and all sales booths accept credit cards as well.

    This farmers’ market is called the “Collaborative Cultural Market,” and is held by the Seoul Metropolitan Government with the participation of a total of nine local governments of cities and provinces that are all located at different locations along the Hangang River. The market will be held on Jamsugyo Bridge and in Banpo Hangang Park on the May 23 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

    The nine cities and provinces include Gangwon-do Association, Chuncheon-si, Hoengseong-gun, Yeongwol-gun, Pyeongchang-gun, Inje-gun, Gapyeong-gun, Danyang-gun, and Gochang-gun, a special guest city that is not located along the Hangang River. I hope you enjoy the wide variety of excellent products from farms and fisheries, as well as the genuine kindness and generosity of our regional citizens.
