Luckily, you CAN find produce for a bit cheaper by scouring the local traditional markets. My first reaction to these prices (which were even higher during the winter months when I arrived) was, "How do the Koreans survive?!" But like everything else, you get used to it. In fact, I bought 2.5 carrots today for 1,600 won, which is the equivalent to almost $1. It felt like a bargain.
