Noryanjin Market or Garak Market

we always make a point to visit a local market whenever we travel abroad.

after searching thru the web, it seems like noryanjin market is a fish market; and garak market is a fish + fruits + other agricultural market.

we are looking for something like the kuromon ichiba market in osaka. preferably a "dry" market with some sea products and local fruits/argricultural produce to look at. :)

1. Re: Noryanjin Market or Garak Market

Hi I'm 17 years old girl in Seoul,Korea.

First of all, I'm so happy you are interested in Korea local market! I like to travel a local market in foreign contry~

Noryanjin Market or Garak Market don't have mood about traditional Korea market I think.

If you want to feel real Korea market, I recommend Jeongseon market. I think it can help you to know the real Korea market. but it held every fifth day such as 8/22, 8/27, 9/2, 9/27......

And it isn't held in Seoul, but Korail (the train that is managed by Korea.) has the package. It include train, visiting Jeongseon market and watching Arirang performance. And you have to choose a rail bike or a cave travel. (These two depend money.) A rail bike package is 55,000WON(Korea money)

A cave travel package is 48,000WON.

If you are interested these package, I can tell you about it more.

we visited several markets in Seoul and enjoyed them all but we particularly enjoyed visiting the branch of E-mart in Kaywon (outer Seoul). We were taken there by our Korean hosts as we gathered things for an evening meal. We were suprised to find the supermarket staffed with lots of people in chef regalia preparing samples of food for you to taste. The supermarket was packed full of really interesting fish things live frozen and packed into containers.

We could have spent quite some time there looking at things and tasting bits and pieces.

Perhaps someone else can say whether there is a branch like this nearer to central Seoul
