Small and nice market to go around and look at. Not so much shopping to do. People are nice and friendly. We lived close by so wasn't a detour to visit.

I really loved Jungbu Market. I just love traditional market. The market is very clean, with no fishy smells. Friendly Ajumma sells varieties dried fish, squids, seaweed, gingseng etc. The market definitely a fun place to look around. I just loved visiting traditional market.
