Osaka Farmer's Market Overview in Kansai Scene

Tokyo is not the only city in Japan brimming with markets. I've written about markets as I find them in our travels, but not yet offered an overview. Kansai Scene, a magazine for Osaka and the surrounding region, gave me the chance to do just that. With the help of a friendly reader (who I hope to meet in late March over fresh vegetables at a new market in Nara!) I put together this feature article letting folks know what's going on in that fair city.

Take a look, feel inspired, and hit the road!

As always, watch for my weekly market calendar for Tokyo, and feel free to let me know if there's a market to be covered. The world needs to know where to find good food.

Both links of the article on kansai scene are dead now.

I would love to get some fresh vegetables around Kobe.
Do you have another link or copy of the article?

I do indeed have another copy of the article. If you leave your email in a comment (I won't publish it, of course.) I'll send along the pdf. However, I may not be able to do so for a few weeks as I'm going to be traveling. Feel free to be pesky, though!

Also, I believe Kobe has a handful of farmers markets. Please stay in touch and I'll see what I can find.

Just checking in from the road, and wondered if you could leave your actual email. I connected with you on Google, but I'm not sure how to send you the pdf. Thanks!
