We enjoyed wandering and getting lost at Bujeon market. A proper local market selling fish, veges etc., not souvenirs. Busy during the day, quieter at night when business is winding down for the day.

Bujeon Market was very big selling all kinds of vegetables,fruits, meats, household things, clothes, seafoods and others, a walking distance from Seomyeon Underground Station. Definitely worth a look.

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...More
