Why Seogwipo Olle Market is special ?

Seogwipo Olle Market is the largest market in Seogwipo. It is a traditional market that was formed in the early 1960s and is a mainstay in the Seogwipo economy. Starting from 2001, the market expanded its shopping center and now stretches over 620m. The interior of the market is designed in such a way that visitors can easily navigate shops and vendors

It is not only enjoyed by residents in downtown Seogwipo. Visitors also enjoy the farm produce, seafood, and many other items on sale.

What to explore at Seogwipo Olle Market?

The Seogwipo Olle Market is connected to Route 6 of Jeju Olle Course, a beautiful hiking route that encompasses both coastal and downtown areas. Going to a market might sound weird for a traveler’s itinerary, but it is an interesting way to take a step into the local life, fully relishing the charm of the region.

The Kkong-chi gimbap (Mackerel roll) (₩2,000) is sold at the entrance of the Seogwipo Olle Market may look rather off-putting for those accustomed to the delicate appearances of sushi, but it is surprisingly delicious and heartily recommended by locals.

It is a little more spacious and less crowded than the bigger markets in the north, the Olle Market is a relaxing shopping (and cultural) experience.

Major shopping items : Omaegitteok (A chewy rice cake dough colored in green using mugwort, filled with a red bean paste, and then covered with pounded red bean), mandarin oranges, fresh seafood (hairtail, tile fish, eel, hagfish)

“Good visit” We bought halibut sashimi from a stall. They have table inside the stall where u can eat them. But we decided to take out so we could have it with sochu. We asked stall owner if they sell abalone sashimi and they said no but immediately showed us to the stall that sells them and helped us translate a little. Do note that eating it as sashimi is really too hard and rather bland in taste. However, amazingly, once cooked, it becomes tender and sweet. Bought some strawberries as well, 5k won for a basket. Very sweet and big.
