Go earlier in the day. We went around 19:30 and most stalls were closing already. From what we could see and the few stores that were open, they were mainly selling fruit and vegetables or meats. Local market and nice to see a local atmosphere. Not sure if they would usually open later given that Korea is still opening up post C-19.

We have been to countless simojar markets in many different cities in Korea. By now we knew what to expect in their markets.

Can be ptretty boring but then if you have time to kill, might as well don't waste it sitting in the hotel.
Seems such markets are a distinct culture in Korea.

This market is quite small compared to the others but has the usual live seafood, fruits & vegetables, etc.

The Bujeon Subway station is just outside the market.

After checking with our hotel owner, I was told that Bujeon Market is open on Sunday even though many shops and some stalls are closed. Despite of that, we still have much to see and buy. We had our food at one of the stalls. There are so much varieties of dried and wet foodstuff, nuts, fresh ginseng, seaweed, seafood, vegetables, clothing, etc. We bought fresh ginseng, sunflower seeds, nuts, seaweeds, blouses, fruits, etc. We managed to get all we have intended to buy at this market. I highly recommend this market because in my opinion, if you come to this market, you need not go round hunting for your stuff at other markets. Somebody should have said that in this review so that we don't waste our time hunting our stuff at other markets.

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

Another wet market in Busan, but this one has more dry goods. Bought some fresh ginseng here. Good to walk around 1-2 hours.

We went to this market almost daily(5 times) to shop for daily consumption and bring home. It was berry season and we bought all kind of berries daily to eat while visiting tourist spots.

Pros :
1) Extremely large market. Easily takes half a day. Many sections, from vegetables, seafood, dried food, meat, fruits, roots, sea weed, eating places, utensils and the like.
2) Not expensive. Buy from vendors with display prices.
3) Local market, not many tourist especially on a weekday.
4) Clean and hygenic.
5) 10 mins. from Seomyeon subway.

Cons :
1) Cash only.
2) Map not available. May get confusing since there is no English signs.
3) The wet market can get smelly after a while.
4) No GST refund facilities.

It is a must see in Busan. Strongly recommend and will definitely visit again.

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 fairly smelly after a while, which can be a bit of a discomfort.

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.

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.
