  • This is a very popular tourist spot in Sokcho. People can eat, drink, watch, listen, enjoy the atmosphere and experience many things here. Although food prices are expensive, but you can enjoy a variety of traditional foods that only you can taste in the Sokcho area, and you can feel the atmosphere of the Korean traditional markets. Of course, the traffic is hell on weekends as crowds gather.
  • Love this place! Lots of great and cheap food! Sweet potato cookies, hotteok, corn dogs are a must! Check out the cheap fruits too!
  • I really had a great time at this market. They had a good selection of different stalls.
  • Cool little market in sokcho you can visit to buy some street food. It's rather clean compared to someone of busy markets in Busan or Seoul. Go there and try some new food!
  • Overall a great market for some genuine Korean food at a decent price. There is a lot of variety and countless shops to choose from. That said, there are some things to look out for. First, a lot of the shops have a propensity to precook their food then reheat it when you purchase it, or not at all. It's a good idea to insist on the freshly made ones and definitely do not buy anything that's turned stone cold or looks like it sat around all day. The fried foods are a prime example of this. Second, if you are adventurous then you should venture into a seafood shop where they have fresh live seafood on display out front. The best ones are in the basement of a building, you'll know by walking down some stairs past the restrooms. There's a huge sprawling area filled with Koreans eating fresh seafood and sitting at low tables. To eat here, you'll have to negotiate the price of some amount of seafood you'll pick from the tanks. I repeat, you must negotiate the price of the seafood lower and don't ever let them lead you to believe the free "service" food they give you is actually worth anything. Good luck!
