While I was at Busan’s Ja-Gal-Ch’i Fish Market over the summer, I spent a chunk of my afternoon meandering through both the market and the streets of Busan. Apparently in the fall, they hold their cultural festival for foreign tourists, although the market had no shortage of fish and other delicacies across countless streets in downtown Busan and is plentiful anytime of the year.
This bustling market was established by women peddlars during the Korean War and has become known as “Aunt’s Market”. Traders sell an amazing array of seafood, shellfish and exotic seaweed. Go on a walk with me through the market — it’s vibrant and alive!
