Tokyo Farmer's Markets: Sunday, June 23rd

Summer, 2012.
Another glorious day for a visit to a Tokyo Farmer's Market has begun, so don't be shy about heading out to any of these little foodly festivals. You're sure to find plenty of bounty at each one representing the best of the season. Early potatoes should be arriving as well as garlic and the season's first tea. Pop a few baked goods into the bag, settle on a new vegetable to try, and then choose which food vendor to wait in line at for a yummy snack. While you munch, surely you'll spot something else scrumptious to buy that you simply forgot to add to the list.

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 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!
