Jungang Market was built in 1900s by several merchants who took advantage of its proximity to the railway station. The term “jungang” literally means central in Korean. This market is actually the oldest and largest traditional market in the metropolitan city. Due to its central location, Jungang Market was often the go-to destination of people, not just from Daejeon but also from other cities, for shopping when online shopping was not yet a thing. And since it is just right across Daejeon Station, it is convenient for other people to visit this market. It is also the wholesale market that connects Gyeongsang-do Province and Jeolla-do Province.
