Tokyo's Farmer's Markets: October 22nd and 23rd

Chill winds and clear skies mean the cool season crops are on their way. If you don't grow your own, check out one of the wonderful regular markets happening this weekend. There's more than enough treats to be had from growers happy to share recipes, information on how to grow it yourself, or just swap stories. (Or, as in my case, patiently wade through my basic Japanese to have a chat.) It's all good!

(Today's photo is from the Ludlow Food Festival, which still makes me smile every time I think about it. We sampled some of the rhubarb-ginger liqueur from Ludlow Distillery, and my only regret is that I didn't bring a bottle home with me to Tokyo.)

Every Saturday and Sunday in October
10am to 4pm

I was delighted to find your farmers' market report through a Google+ search on "Roppongi." I'm visiting Tokyo soon for the first time and will be fascinated to compare the market there to my regular standby, Barnes farmers' market in south west London.

Glad you found it, Scott! I'm sure you'll enjoy the market and your stay in the city. Depending on when and how long you're here, you might enjoy a couple others, too. Keep me posted, and I can offer some advice. I'll be curious, too, to hear how it compares to your home market.
