  • Busy market for locals. Tourists are also taken here on tours. Market is filled with local food items, fish, and some inexpensive clothing. It's about a 30 minuet look.  more »
  • I experienced a nice and reasonable seafood meal at this Dongmun market. The stall owner is friendly.  more »
  • Not as big as the 5 day market but still provides an interesting insight into the daily food norms of the locals. It's sheltered so rainy days is not an issue though parking may be. There are a few lo...  more »

  • More of a tourist destination than for locals, very repetitive. Hallabong oranges are delicious (at least at this time of year - mid-March - look for a shiny skin and a heavy weight. If you scratch the skin you should be able to smell it easily). We got 3 very tasty oranges for 7000 won. Unlike regular oranges, skin colour is usually a good indicator of taste for tangerines so look for a more reddy colour). Worth a stop if you're in jeju for a while, but not a must.
  • Large range of shops, predominantly seafood or pork based. Great place to look around.
  • You can get street food and sashimi from here. Also few places sell jeju souvenir. Very close to jungang underground market.
  • Mmmm... In fact, here is not any more local bazar, only one of shopping center for tourist group. Sometimes you can find an original Jeju merchant in here, but have to give up awesome products. There are almost expensive enough.
  • This is one of the oldest markets in Jeju city. There is delicious food, rice cakes and you get to see the difference in produce from Jeju compared to Seoul. Lots of oranges!!! Orange candy, juice, different size oranges...they are everywhere!
