Big Flea Market

 
It's fall in Korea and we are enjoying the just appropriate weather and clear sky.
On the October 19th, Seoul YWCA hosted Big Flea Market at the YWCA parking lot.
 
A variety of goods and food were displayed everywhere in the market, they were relatively inexpensive. The special section of this year was low carbon agricultural products from local farmers.
They sold pears, apples, cherry tomatoes, corns, rice that were cultivated by low carbon technology.

 Also there were a lot of second-hand products from YWCA members. They looked still useful and very very cheap. All the profits are going to do good public programs in Seoul YWCA.
We would like to thank all the participants to the Seoul YWCA's Big Flea Market.
