Kwangjang Market Tour with Cute Filipino Babies!

Last week the Agency for Traditional Market Administration sponsored a market tour and a Crescent Moon Rice Cake Cooking Class with O'ngo Food Communications for Filipino Mothers and children currently married to Korean spouses in Korea. I mentioned it before on this post on the cooking class, 
but I didn't post the pictures of the market tour.
For the tour, all the kids were dressed in hanboks (Korean traditional clothes)- even the babies. They looked very cute and colorful as they walked through the market.

If you haven't been to Kwangjang Market yet, I highly recommend it. The shopkeepers are all very friendly, the food is delicious, the prices are cheap, and there is just a wonderful energy about the place. It's the place to see the real Korea.

Small Crispy Crab Side Dish! Eat it Whole!
The boy's face is priceless
The shopkeepers all gave out a ton of food.
I don't think the baby likes it.
Did you know that there are over 200 different types of Kimchi in North and South Korea?
I think she likes Kimchi^^
