After a three-year absence from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hangang Moon Light Market has returned. The Seoul Metropolitan Government announced on August 25 that the market would open on August 26 at Seocho-Banpo gu’s Hangang Park.

The once-dominant nighttime event in the nation’s capital was selected as one of the “top 10 news stories” by the general public, but it was cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic.

This year, the market will be open from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. every Friday and Saturday from August 26 to October 29. It will be closed during the Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving) holidays (Sept. 9-12).

The concept of the event is relaxation in an emotional space that complements the city’s beautiful nightscape, which includes the Hangang River and the Banpodaegyo Bridge’s Moonlight Rainbow Fountain.

This year’s market will feature approximately forty food trucks and sixty sales booths. Given the younger generation’s interest in value-based consumption items such as vegan and recycled products, the city government will assist food truck owners who have struggled due to social distancing and provide them with value-based consumption items such as vegan and recycled goods.

The market’s schedule may be altered due to inclement weather or temporary closures. Before heading to the venue, visitors are urged to check the event’s official website (bamdokkaebi.org) or Instagram account (hangangmoonlightmarket) for updates.
