Happy Chuseok & Happy Mid-Autumn Festival
Chuseok is one of the biggest holidays in Korea. It is sometimes referred to as “Korean Thanksgiving” because it’s a special time for family, friends, and food. It is a major mid-autumn harvest festival and a three-day holiday in South Korea celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar on the full moon. It's also known as Mid-Autumn Festival in China and Tết Trung Thu in Viet Nam. Uncover the cultural tapestry woven into Chuseok, South Korea's harvest festival. Explore the customs, traditional foods, and family gatherings that make this holiday a time of gratitude and reflection.
Songpyeon is one of the essential dishes for Chuseok - a small, crescent-shaped, often colourful, rice cake that contains red beans, chestnuts, jujubes, powdered sesame, or just brown sugar. Traditionally, families would gather round and make songpyeon. Come and enjoy complimentary Songpyeon at our store.
