Tokyo Farmer's Markets: Saturday, June 29th

Mouth-watering bread at 246 Common
A lovely little round-up of markets for the last Saturday of the month. Head on out to Roppongi's bonanza of fresh fruit, vegetables, grains, cut flowers, and more or to the UN University's weekend long celebration of foodly fun. And, of course, there's always Yurakacho, a market near the traditional heart of Tokyo that deserves much more attention than it gets. Take your pick and see you there!

Every Saturday and Sunday
A massive weekend affair that is great fun and features a variety of fruits and vegetables and prepared products from all over Japan. Plus, there's a most excellent selection of food trucks offering everything from salad to zingy curry to roast chicken to falafel!
10am to 4pm

Every Saturday
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

Every Saturday and Sunday
Smaller than the UNU Market, Yurakacho features a particular region of Japan each week along with an excellent selection of seasonal fruit and vegetables. Growers from nearby Chiba, Kamakura, and Saitama are also on hand to help fill the larder.
11am to 5pm
Directions: Turn left out of Yurakacho 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!
