Some History for the market
Daegu's medicine street is a huge herbal medicine market focusing on the practice of oriental medicine that goes way back to the Joseon Dynasty. Back then this medicine market was the main hub for all things related to Oriental medicine, selling to countries all around the world, Chine, Russia, Japan to name a few.

Today Yangnyeongsi is still a hub for sellers, buyers and herb farmers with more than 50 stores and 25 clinics and over 20 Ginseng stores. Yangnyeongsi is also known to be the first wholesale medicine market in Korea.
