932, Yangjae-daero, Songpa-gu, Seoul (서울특별시 송파구 양재대로 932 (가락동))

Opened in 1985 as the first public wholesale market in Korea, Garak Market offers separate sections for fruits, vegetables, garlic, fish, dried foods and meat in a 543,451 square meters area.

Run by the Seoul Agricultural & Marine Products Corporation, the market is where agricultural and fishery products from around the nation are distributed and set for standard pricing. Throughout the night, the market receives lines of freight trucks filled with fresh food.

If you want to see the auction, one of the more exciting aspects of the market, it’s best to visit between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. If you go much later in the evening you may get lost among the trucks and merchants that start pouring in.

Because the market is so big, it may be too time-consuming and tiring to look around without first getting a map and deciding on which sections you want to visit.
