Tokyo Farmer's Markets: July 23rd and July 24th

The typhoon blew in some cooler weather making it a perfect opportunity to head down to a farmer's market. In season just now are edamame, tomatoes galore, potatoes by the dozen, eggplant, and perhaps a few last green beans. As for fruit look for peaches and those lovely red and yellow cherries, too! And do a little shopping for me. We're off to Kawaguchiko for a bit of biking and Mount Fuji spotting!

A little side note: I visited this one last weekend and have a write-up in the works. Very nice little market with a good selection, and right in the heart of Tokyo to boot!

Know of a market or cool vegetable vendor in your neck of the woods? Give me a shout and we'll spread the word!

Picture: Pak-san and Yamazaki-san, organic growers at Daimu Farm in Chiba, at last weekend's Kinshicho Market. Groovy tomatoes and loads of potatoes - yum!
