I enjoyed shopping in this market. I will not leave Busan without coming to this market. Was here in Sept 2014 and now in Sept 2016. There are so much varieties, from fresh ginseng to seaweeds to food to fruits, etc. Bought what I wanted from this market. Discovered a well-known varieties of fish cakes restaurant in the market. Impressed... More

One of the truly great markets in Korea. It's tough to find a market that is big enough to warrant a visit, and not so touristic so that it feels authentic. Bujeon Market hits that sweet spot. It has all kinds of foods, included lots of fish, fruits and vegetables. It's not expensive and food is fresh. It can get... More

A very large wet market with fresh food like seafood, meat and vegetables as well as dried food like nuts and grains. Small eateries too. Many side streets to explore. The ground is wet at most places so wear covered shoes. Good way of seeing how the locals live.

Another amazing cultural experience in Busan. Be prepared to walk as you navigate your way through the vast amount of alley ways at this market. Definitely something to experience in Korea.

If you visit Busan, you must visit this market. You can find so many delicious fresh or ready-served korean fods with cheaper price! You also can find cheap souvenirs and suitcases

Not far from Samyeon metro station about 10 minute walk. Visited in May evening. It is a traditional wet market selling meat, fresh seafood, preserved food, vegetables and fruits. Mainly locals patronizing here. Prices are reasonable and can be bargained if you know.

Shopkeepers were happy for photos to be taken. It can be wet on the ground so wear closed shoes. Try some fish cake sticks!

This is maybe my favorite market in Korea. It's not really much different than other traditional markets, but I always seem to find really cheap and delicious fruits here, which I find can be hit and miss in Korea. If in the area check it out, but even though I love it I wouldn't recommend going out of your way... More
