Are you in a mood to stay in Summer forever? We’ve had the same feeling today so we headed to the Yangjae Wholesale Flower Market to keep the house bright, colorful & beautiful
Located in southern Seoul’s Seocho-gu district (opposite to Costco on the other site of the highway), the Yangjae Flower Market in Seoul is Korea’s largest flower market.
Divided into several major zones, Yangjae Flower Market Center offers services in every aspect of the flower business including wholesale stores, retail stores and an auction house. At every time of the year, you can find almost all sorts of flowers including fresh cut flowers, potted flowers and even dried or artificial flowers, not to mention flowerpots and other gardening items, like tools and fertilizers.
It’s a paradise for fragrances and colors. Of course the prices here are lower than at retail shops in downtown Seoul.
- Wholesale Zone: Monday-Saturday 1 a.m. – 3 p.m.
- Retail Zone: 6 a.m. – 8 p.m.
- Potted Flower Zone: 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. (Note: Half of the stores in the retail zone and potted flower zones are open in shifts on Sundays).
