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.
Here I explain Rich Soybean Paste and Red Pepper Paste (Gochujang)

I think she’s posing^^

Everyone loves the Bindaetteok

Here is the motherload of Banchan (Side Dishes)

See.. Squid is not that bad^^

On the end is Garlic Stems in Gochujang

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^^

Got Rice Cake?
