Chungbu - Jungbu Dry Fish Market

Are you tired of modern malls and themed cafes? Explore more things to do in Dongdaemun. Head over to the Jungbu Dry Fish Market for an authentic, local experience. Opened in 1959, this is the oldest dried seafood market in South Korea. You can find a wide assortment of dried goods such as seaweed, squid, anchovies, pollack, ginseng, and so many more!

The well-maintained market truly comes alive in the day, especially in the mornings, where most stalls are open. Your five senses are in for a treat of sights, sounds, and scents of dried seafood and dried kimchi permeating the atmosphere.

Stall vendors are friendly but competitive, jostling to offer high-quality produces at the best price. Everything available is up to 30% cheaper than regular markets. Stall vendors are quick to help pack all the food tight and sealed, making it hygienic and convenient to bring a good haul home.

Don’t miss sampling on local food while you’re there. However, if you are just looking to taste-test, snacks and seafood choices available at the market should suffice!
