After 3:00 in the afternoon, merchants call it a day and the market begins to cool down. But then, the spots that had been occupied by street vendors are taken by street stalls selling meals utilizing fresh seafood from the morning market. Lined up like open-air cafés, the stalls have turned into a must-stop destination for travelers visiting Yeosu.

Gyodong Market first began in 1965 as a temporary market where merchants and customers gathered to sell or buy fish caught in the sea of Yeosu. The permanent fish market was established following the completion of Dolsandaegyo Bridge in December 1984 and grew into a large-scale market almost one kilometer long.
