Founded in 1970 in Gwanghalluwon Garden, Namwon Public Market is one of the most famous traditional markets in Namwon, and it offers a variety of groceries and daily necessities, including Namwon’s famous woodenware and kitchen knives. 
Vendors at the market specialize in selling miscellaneous goods, clothes, bowls, dried fish, seafood, fruit, and supplies for practicing ancestral rites, all at surprisingly affordable prices, which works to attract more customers. In addition, in the large-scale joint fruit and vegetable market neighboring Namwon Public Market, you can get fresh products at low wholesale and retail prices. 
Do not forget to try old-fashioned blood sausage and rice soup available only in Namwon Public Market and get crispy laver snacks that go well with liquor.
