An Evening At The Daein Art Night Market 28.Mar.15

60 °F

The Daein Market is a large, traditional, open-air market (complete with awning) containing hundreds of stores.

The Daein Art Night Market is held one weekend a month, on Friday and Saturday from 7:30 to midnight. *And, twice a month during the summer. There are art exhibits from artists residing in the market, where visitors can purchase unique works of art. In the center of the market, citizens of Gwangju set up and sell hand-made products, food, and second-hand goods. Market-goers browse the crafts and artworks, sample the good food, enjoy live music, and take part in various cultural programs. The night market is like a small festival in the city.

Alexis wanted to craft one of these little nut creatures. Which was fine with me, 'cause I got to eat his insides during creation!
