Autumn means harvest and in Korea, it means some of the most delicious fruits and vegetables are in season. Living the concrete jungle of Seoul may have you feeling out of touch with hands-on agriculture. Urban Marketplace Marche@ is providing a chance for you to access this year’s harvest directly from the producers themselves. There will be booths run by farmers, cooks and handicraft artisans selling their goods at this farmers market, with locations varying bi-monthly (more info at marcheat.net). Often, you’ll be able to sample some of the food and ask questions before bagging up the home-produced items. Be it apples that are in season or salmon caught a few days prior, Marche@ brings the freshest to Seoul. Skip your regular mega-store for the week and taste the difference in eating some good homegrown produce!
