Yeosu’s Market

market1 This posting is from Chelsea Gannon:

Fruits and vegetables are incredibly expensive (I have bought a single carrot for 3 dollars and seen watermelons priced at 30) so today  I decided to go to the local market rather than the standard grocery store in hopes of finding some lower prices. Not only did I find vegetables for reasonable prices (still pricy compared to the states- but no where near as mind blowingly high) I had a lot of fun exploring and talking with the ajumas.

The meat section of the market was a little less enjoyable and I was nearly run over by an ajosshi pushing a cart of halved pig carcasses.
