Founded in 1966, Jeongseon Arirang Market is in a mixed form of a permanent market and a fifth-day market starting on the 2nd day of every month. The market specializes mainly in agricultural goods such as chili peppers, balloon flower roots, potatoes, and garlics grown in the region, and because you can purchase these fresh products directly from farmers, you can get them at surprisingly affordable prices. 
Not so far from the market, you can find a medicinal herb market that offers medicinal herbs such as Jeongseon’s signature products, like milk vetch root, giant angelica, and kneeling angelica. Jeongseon Arirang Market has been attracting a number of tourists every year thanks to the Jeongseon Arirang Train, which was launched in 1999. The market is improving its customer services by offering Jeongseon Arirang Performance a few times a day with train timetable taken into account.
