Japan Farmers Markets Gift Recommendations in Metropolis Magazine

In case you didn't notice, I'm a big advocate of farmers markets and shopping locally. I'm also a fan of a good pickle, a nice jar of jam, and food in general. And don't even get me started on assorted craft items. We could be here for hours.

So, it should be no surprise that I managed to worm my way into Metropolis Magazine, a Tokyo publication for the hip and happening about all things  happening and hip in our fair city, with a blurb on farmers markets. While I'd like them to give over an entire issue to markets and the wonderful people and items to be found there, I'm more than glad at the moment to have crafted their most recent The Goods column. Check it out along with the markets listed (plus a few more) for some terrific shopping, new ideas, and just general fun!

Small aside: I might also mention that Refugees International Japan, an organization I support, has a table of goodies for sale at the Roppongi Market. Do head over and see what they've got and do a little extra good.
