  • Typical Korean marked, with emphasis on seafood. But, here the Koreans on holiday are buying presents for family and friends and the vendors ship them directly. This includes fresh fish...
  • Y'know what, you can buy fish and ship it to Seoul for free. You don't have to carry it with you to the airport and worry about all that. The fish is fresh, but make sure you can speak Korean
  • 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.
  • Still a tourist attraction where you can try some Korean snacks. You can buy tangerine there.
  • A huge markey with fruits, seafood, grocery, restsurants etc.
