Daytrip to Ganghwa Island (5 of 9) – Poongmul Market

This market on the edge of the main urban area on Ganghwa Island opens every five days. We just happened to show up on the day it was open.

As they say, "가는 날이 장 날이다" (It's always market day when one visits.) This Korean saying normally has the nuance of having bad timing, but for us on Sunday, it was good timing!
