It is just a local fish market selling almost similar live fishes across all stalls but the sea view behind the market is worth photo taking. there is a nearby grocery building where you can purchase local products.

Interesting to see the kinds of seafood they have there - most of them are still alive so it would be awesome to have them as meals. First floor is where they sell all kinds of live seafood. Second floor is where the different stalls are. You can opt to bargain and buy the seafood from the first floor and... More

We brought our young son here for some exploring and he had a great time. He was able to see so many varieties of fish and other seafood. The vendors were also very friendly and indulged our curious little boy. This stop doesn't take long. Maybe an hour is enough.

The market is located between the Jagalchi and Nampo subway stations - you can use either one to reach the market. The market is huge! It really is an entire area of independent stalls, a large main building (filled with more stalls and restaurants), and more. Most stalls sell similar seafood throughout the market area. The seafood selection certainly isn't... More

We wanted to try live squid (at Won10k for a small one). Be sure to chew and chew. First one for me the tentacle suck at my inner lips. Abalone porridge was good, so are the eels. Good experience.

This is an interesting fish market. You can see a lot of exotic fish that we don't have in America. You also get to see how the locals sell and prepare the unique fish.

Located along the waterfront, Jagalchi market is large, and consists of a number of buildings and streets. There are two large buildings that house the 'wet' stalls on the ground floor. Here you are suppose to buy the fresh produce and bring them upstairs on the 2nd floor to your selected restaurant to cook them for you (for a fee... More

Tried the seafood in Jagalchi market. Very fresh indeed. Best to be served with soju or beer. Worth a try.
