DongDaeMun East Gate Market Open Hours

This Page is a general guide to year-round store open hours, over the whole of DongDaeMun Market, including West-side consumer area as well as East-side WholeSale district as of Summer 2014 – however, keep in mind this really depends upon each building, and then some even on floor and each shop . a new-comer friendly map of the whole area is at inner LiNK at the bottom of this Page .

*For those inquiring open hours during national holidays : this changes depending upon block and building, so I can only Post every other year as a separate Page on TOP MENU .
