This herb medicine district in Gyeongdong Market, which was established in the 1960s, is where 70% of all Oriental medicine in Korea is sold. Traditional clinics all around the country purchase their herbal medicine from sellers here at Gyeongndong Market, and regular customers visit every season to buy the medicine they need. You can walk down an alley of the market that has the pungent aroma of herbal medicine or visit Seoul Yangnyeongsi Herb Medicine Museum. Most of the stores here serve as gathering spots for the older generation and as traditional medicinal clinics. The medicines’ expiration dates, places of origin and level of pesticides are all clearly marked, thanks to strengthened policies and inspections.
