With the road sign indicating the start and the end point of Dokkaebi Road, it is easy to find the road.

After passing through Dokkaebi Road, you will see Biamsa Temple where the 800-year-old zelkova tree casts a shadow over the ground in front of the temple.

The three-story stone pagoda at the very center of the ground and the Geungnakbojeon Hall have been designated and protected as tangible cultural assets in Chungnam.

“Sejong Traditional Market” is the best traditional market in Sejong City. It is the former “Jochiwon Traditional Market,” which was the best traditional market in Yeonggi-gun, Chungcheongnam-do, which has been integrated into Sejong City in July 2012. As the center of traditional five-day market in Yeonggi-gun, this market has changed its name due to the current shift in administrative sectors.

There is no doubt for providing inexpensive and quality products,”“That’s why people visit the traditional market,” and “You can even get a discount if lucky.” These are replies given without hesitation by a woman, in front of vendors, with various things to shop when she was asked the question, “Do you like products from this market?”

Sejong Traditional Market is a market where small-sized vendors and stores sell their products in harmony. The market sells every dish on our kitchen table, including vegetable, fish and dried fish pancakes and foods from butcher’s shop and mills. Merchants have their own stories from their age and history. They have stayed at the market not only for a few years; from ten years to forty years, merchants at Sejong Traditional Market sell their products on a daily basis. It seems that they bother each other by selling similar products, but they are always peaceful and harmonious like friendly neighbors. As they have been selling products for a long time, each merchant has his or her own regular customers. Rather, they have an advanced marketing strategy whereby being together is more effective in attracting more customers.
