Outdoor Market in Yeosu

We spent a fair amount of time exploring the outdoor markets in Yeosu. Vendors sold fruits (including the small and bright chamen melons pictured at left); vegetables - small round zucchini, eggplants, and the most beautiful beans ever; kimchi - a million varieties it seemed; clothing - fancy blouses and skirts to working pants and nifty hats; kimbap and other prepared foods; fish - fresh, living, dried, and drying; seaweed - dried, fresh, sheets, and clumps; meats - whole, heads, parts, and innards; hardware - car parts to electronic bits; parasols too lovely to be called umbrellas; as well as the occasional health and beauty aid under awnings and along the edges of streets.
