Together with Jungang market and Jeil Market, Keunsijang Market is a representative traditional market in Dongducheon City, located at 812-6, Saengyeon-dong. As nearby farmers traded their produce, this market was formed organically and officially opened in 1961. It is a permanent and comprehensive market that deals with wholesale and retail sales of agricultural and livestock products. It is a fifth-day market, operating on the 5th, 10th, 15th, 25th, and 30th day of every month.
