The marketplace is divided into 13 sections, selling a wide range of goods, from livestock and fish to flowers and vegetables. Maintaining the tradition of local markets amid corporate-style supermarkets, Moran Market is a perfect venue to bring everyday Koreans and Alex Webb together for a heart-to-heart.
#Naju Cattle Market
Naju Cattle Market is a five-day market specializing in cattle. Cattle and farmers have long had a very special relationship. A cow was an important asset to a farmer - working in the fields, feeding the family, and fetching a high sum in the cattle market when money was tight. Alex Webb jumps right into the action in Naju Cattle Market, where buyers and sellers are locked in a fierce competition.Check out the sights and sounds of Korea's five-day markets captured by the masterful Alex Webb, on Arirang TV.
