November Farmers Markets in Tokyo and Yokohama

Fish burger and craft beer at Ishinomaki's Genki Ichiba ! Even as we gear up for the Rugby World Cup Final this weekend, my eyes are on the markets happening around town. The mix of rain and sun recently means winter crops are settling in nicely, so look for daikon mabiki , carrot thinnings , and, of course, plenty of sweet potatoes. This is a delicious time and the season only gets tastier as it goes along. Make a special treat for the game, and see you at the market! Market of the Sun Saturday, November 9 and Sunday, November 10 Market of the Sun (a.k.a. Taiyo Marche)  professes to be one of the largest, and it is certainly a good one. A short walk from Tsukiji Market and its wonderful surrounds, this market is worth a visit for its lovely selection of foodly and crafty items that rivals the goodies found at the UNU Market. 10am to 4pm Step out of Kachidoke Station at Exits A4a or A4b and look for the tents.

October Farmers Markets in Tokyo and Yokohama

Bud from Gypsy Chicks Farm at Dayton's Second Street Market. Typhoons come and go, and the warm temperatures seem to linger a little longer this year. While that translates into more eggplant and tomato, it also makes for some fine market visiting weather! Whip up a tasty soup for watching the rugby matches with the multitude of squash on offer or make a spicy dipping concoction with some of Peppers.jp's potent harvest. This time of year the options are endless! See you at the market! Market of the Sun Saturday, October 12 and Sunday, October 13 Market of the Sun (a.k.a.
