Interesting to see all sorts of seafood available in this market. The sellers were friendly and introduced their products to us. Nearby is the port and you can have some rest time by enjoying the breeze and seagulls

We went there twice last week for dinner last week. We tried different restaurants. The first time we had our food at a seafood restaurant close to the seafood market. Food was very fresh but pricy. On the second night, we went into Jagalchi market building, a few stories building. There are over 50 seafood stalls in the building, selling different types of live fish, iced and flesh shellfish on its ground floor. We bought a few types of live seafood from one of the stalls, then the seller brought us to the second level for cooking and eating at a very local eatery. We saw quite a lot of local peoples having dinners on the second floor of this seafood market. Over dozens of eateries are there to provide simple seafood cooking service and drinks. There are also a lot of dry food stalls back of the same second floor, selling seaweed & dried seafood. Prices and cooking charges were more reasonable within the building, as compared to those restaurants on the road side close to the market.

We arrived mid morning (9:30 am) on a Saturday and the place was bustling with vendors and fresh seafood. The conch/ clam market was open Saturday morning too and we noted it was closed Sunday when we went back. The seafood was jumping literally out of their containers and onto the floor. Expect to get a bit wet by flying seafood. I got squirted by a clam or two as well. They just project water at unsuspecting tourists that walk by. We went back Sunday afternoon and the seafood was really limp comparatively and the tanks half empty. Not sure if they deliver fresh on Saturdays but seems like a totally different experience based on day of visit.
