Busan, Gijang Market | 부산 기장시장 & Ediya Coffee
Gijang Market is an a traditional outdoor market selling various products including fishery and agricultural products. It features seasonal fishery products. Cutlass fish and flower crab is famous in autumn.
Here is the apartment that we stayed for 2 nights in Busan. Gijang Market is just located about 10 minutes walking distance from the apartment. We are flying off to Jeju in the afternoon, so my uncle suggested us to visit Gijang Market since we still have some times in the morning before depart to the airport.
walking to Gijang market .. Gijang is not crowded and busy like Busan city and it is just started to developed, many newly built apartment can be seems along the way. However it has all the amenities e.g. schools, medical centre, supermarket, cafes, convenient stores, restaurants even Daiso can be easily find here at the main road.

Korean cutlass fish are well known across the country for their extraordinary taste and are best selling two months before or after Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving).
Mini red crabs
Flower crabs 꽃게 and prawns - we had flower crab cook with soya bean paste (꽃게 된장찌개 Gguk-ge dwenjang-jjigae) as breakfast prepared by my aunt-in-law 외숙모. It's delicious.
