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.
