Confirming Today's Tokyo Farmers Market Outing!


It is raining cats and dogs out there, but I'm still going. I know the farmers and artists will be there, and I just can't not go. If you're still interested in coming out, please do. Bring an umbrella, rain coat...maybe a wet suit? I'll be on the stone bridge near Harajuku Station at 10am with my red umbrella and orange (or yellow?) raincoat. See you there!

Just in case you forgot to put it on your calendar, here's a little reminder about this Sunday's adventure to the Earth Day Market. Join me for a few hours of  fun that are full of good food, interesting people, cool artwork, and most likely some music, too. What could possibly be holding you back? (I won't blame you if you opt out due to the rain. I'll do this again. J)

Tokyo Farmers Market Outing
Sunday, September 23rd
10am - 2pm

Meet on the bridge to Meiji Shrine at 10am. It's right on your way from Harajuku Station to Yoyogi Park. I'll be carrying a red umbrella (for sun or rain!), and will be the slightly dorky looking tall foreign women with glasses and curly hair. We'll walk over to the Earth Day Market where I'll give you a brief run-down of what I know about the vendors, the food available, and then set you loose! Plan to buy lunch there.

A ceramics art fair is on at the same time, which should be just brilliant (albeit damp), too.

Hi! I've been following your blog for the last couple of weeks and really enjoy it. I'm living in Tokyo and attending Waseda University for the year and am interested in getting involved in local and organic food here. I worked on a small farm in the states and have grown hooked on the work and the food. You seem to be the person to talk to about these things in Tokyo and I would appreciate any insight you have on opportunities to work or volunteer in local organic food here. I'm missing it terribly! Thanks so much for your time, let me know if you would prefer to do this by private email or over the phone.

Hi Blindwillow, Thanks for the note and most of all for reading! And welcome to Tokyo!

I would be glad to help you as I can. Why don't you leave your email in a comment and I'll send along a note privately. (I promise not to publish your email, of course.) Look forward to talking more, and I'm glad you enjoy what you find here.
