Tokyo Farmer's Markets: February 25th and 26th

More good food available this weekend! Be sure to look for miso making kits at the Earth Day Market along with the usual mix of winter vegetables and greens. And don't forget to look for more great citrus including yummy yuzu. Oh, the possibilities are just endless!

Sunday, February 26
I could go wax on forever about how great this market is and how important it is for the future of Japanese farming. Instead, I'll just insist that folks go and see for themselves what great things the market and these innovative growers are doing. This month will also feature a great selection of organic wines and some nifty music! 
10am to 4pm, Rain or shine!

Every Saturday and Sunday in February
A massive weekend affair that is great fun and features a variety of fruits and vegetables and prepared products from all over Japan. Plus, the curry I had during my last visit from one of the vendors was plate-licking good. (I refrained, but only just.)
10am to 4pm

Every Saturday in February
A recent first visit to this market was well worth the trip for the number of organic growers and getting to meet a Tokyo farmer from just down the tracks in Kokobunji.
10am to 2pm

Every Saturday and Sunday in February
Another nice market not far from the sumo stadium in Ryogoku it's worth casing out for the neighborhood as well as the vendors.
11am to 5pm

Yurakucho Farmer's Market
Another great market somewhere in size between Kichijoji and the United Nation's Univeristy Farmer's Market, it often features from a particular growing region as well as heaps of farmers and producers from nearby Chiba and Saitama, too.
Every Saturday and Sunday in February
11am to 5pm
Directions: Turn left out of the station and cross the courtyard toward Tokyo Kouku Keitan. Look for the fun under the overhang!

Know of a market? Give me a shout and we'll add it to the list!
