Andong Gu Market is the oldest traditional market in Andong and is known for its long history and colorful culture that you can easily see from its tourist attractions, such as Hahoe Village and Dosanseowon Confucian Academy. On nearby Jungang Culture Street and Andong Food Street, you can enjoy busking to the fullest on weekends along with cheap yet delicious local food from the market. Located in an old town in Andong, Andong Gu Market is always crowed with tourists and local residents. Andong’s signature menu, which every local resident takes pride in, is Andong-style braised chicken, one of the most delicious delicacies from Andong. As Andong is one of the top tourist destinations and is full of decent tradition, you should expect to come by highly original traditional goods and souvenirs. 
Designated as a Cultural Tourism Market in 2013 and a Global Luxury Market in 2016, Andong Gu Market has been developing and offering cultural programs that combine traditional Korean culture with those around the world. The Multicultural Food Carriage is one good example that shows how much effort vendors in the market put into these programs.
