Sinpo market (3,300㎡) dates back to the late 19th century when vendors began selling fresh vegetables to the Japanese, Chinese, and Westerners who settled in the area. Sinpo Market was officially registered as a market in 1970 and now boasts over 140 stores. The most famous item of the market is Dakgangjeong, a Korean dish of crispy fried chicken coated in a sweet and spicy sauce.
