The market created as a new cultural space, 1913Songjeong Railway Station Market
About 100 years ago(1913), there was a permanent market that began to be created naturally in front of a small train station.
A very small market for people who come and go to the station every day. It was ‘Maeil Market in front of Songjeong Railway Station’
With the opening of the KTX at Songjeong Railway Station in 2015, a new wind has been blowing in this small market. But without any change, opportunities did not come easily. To grasp the opportunity, the region and the market vendors make a bold decision.
They decided to be renewed with the young people. That’s how the ‘1913 Songjeong Raiway Station Market’ began
The small market with about 50 shops that is located just across the street from Songjeong Railway Station.
The Traditional Market that becomes a Hot Place in Gwangju
That is the 1913 Songjeong Railway Station Market.
