Tokyo Farmers Markets: December 29th and 30th

Family vegetable shopping at the Nippori Market
As the year winds down, so do the farmers markets. This weekend only a very few regulars are open, but with a good selection of items for gifts, for holiday food preparation, and for the usual eating. Don't forget the added bonus of the Roppongi Farmers Market is the Refugees International Japan table! Good crafty stuff there with yummy vegetables and fruit only a few steps away. Sounds like heaven to me!

Saturday, December 29th
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 until December 29th
A first visit to this market was well worth the trek for the number of organic growers and getting to meet a Tokyo farmer from just down the tracks in Kokobunji!
10am to 2pm

Yurakucho Farmer's Market
Saturday, December 29th
Another great market somewhere in size between Kichijoji and the United Nation's University 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.
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!
