  • This place was commonly visited by most visitors, so I did. If you are looking for nice and fresh seafood, this is the place. Need to bargain with the sellers for a good price, sometimes can cut 30% off. Shops at outer zones (facing streets) cost higher while shop inside the market can get a good bargain. The day I visited was snowing heavily and less visitors around, luckily I gained a good bargain!
  • I can't get enough of the place. In fact, went there twice to continue savoring the freshest seafoods. My favorites were hairy crabs, big oysters, huge scallops, sea urchin and fish cooked, grilled right in front of you. Better to explore the inner part of the market for more precious, delicious finds. Hoping to be back there again...
