The Ju Flea Market The first JU flea market was held on Saturday Nov. 19th at the rainbow cultural center in Youngbong market. The turnout was stellar for the first of many markets to happen in our fair city of Gwangju. There were 12 vendors selling their goodâ€™s. There was wine tasting, gourmet coffees, hotdogs, pancakes, and shots, and that was just the food stands. Things were being sold from baby cloths to books, games to guitars. The turnout for customers was about what was to be expected as the weather did not want to help us that day and there was also a (impromptu) mandatory meeting for foreigners at city hall. So what does this mean for the next JU? That just means it can only get better. With more spots open for sellers and more people knowing about it, *wink wink* we know we will see you there. So please stay tune for the JU-2, listen on GFN radio and also watch for all the invites on Facebook. We hope to see you there.
