Market of the Sun

Japan's largest regular urban farmers' market is back for the fourth time, and will again feature more than 100 vendors from around the country. In addition to a vast range (more than 50 types) of Western and local vegetables, such as baba eggplant and sanjaku cucumber, each month the market will feature a different seasonal fruit or vegetable. For January's edition, the theme is leaf vegetables, including red mizuna leaves from Tochigi and akahijiki, the nutritious seaweed-like plant popular in Fukuoka. In addition to the seasonally changing children's events, farmers will hold workshops and let visitors get involved with harvesting, making the market a great option for parents hoping to sneakily educate their kids.

The market is held on the second Saturday and Sunday of each month.
