Formed in the late 19th century, Jagalchi distributes almost half of the total seafood (both dried and fresh) sold in all of Korea. Fresh seafood caught in nearby areas (such as Namhae) is up for sale year round.
In October each year, Jagalchi holds a large seafood festival. This market represents Busan and is famous throughout the country. If you visit you can eat fresh raw fish right at the market. Even these days you can see women selling mackerel, sea squirts (ascidians) and whale meat on wooden boxes along the road.
