September: Bujeon Market

Updated:March 2, 2011

One of the best parts of traveling in Asia is visiting the markets, which are sprawling with vendors hawking everything from fresh veggies to hanging slabs of meat. The colors, the crowds and the odors (good and horrid) are all part of the experience.

What's great about living in Asia, and not just visiting it, is that you can actually do your grocery shopping here. Things are fresh, super cheap, and you are supporting the local economy!




Bujeon Market is the largest outdoor market in Busan, and boy is it big. I've gone back on my own and I all but got completely lost! I need a guidebook for this thing!


It's nice supporting individual sellers, and the intense competition means fantastic customer service and low prices. I ended up buying an enormous block of tofu for a dollar, and it was clearly homemade. I wish this market existed back home...


Of course, in Asia, you have to be careful when purchasing meat... just kidding!! This kitty must be Garlic Lady's pet. Cute!


That bowlful of garlic is only two bucks. Mmm... no Frankenstein here!


Kimchi, kimchi!
It is good for you and me.


A tour of the market and all it has to offer.
