Farmers’ Market Aoyama 「ファーマーズマーケット/青山」

Farmers’ markets have been popping out around Tokyo in the last years. One of the most famous perhaps is “Farmers’ Market Aoyama” located in the heart of fancy Aoyama (right in front of the UN University so you can’t miss it!)

Most Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 4pm, dozens of stalls offer their fresh fruits, vegetables, rice, plants, bonsai and crafts.

Besides the stalls you can also find a wide selection of food trucks selling coffee, salads, juices and other healthy snacks. The market has outdoor tables to sit and enjoy your meal.

“The market’s motto is “Water, sun and the earth”, bringing together the themes of culture and cultivating and also creating a place where “people who make food” can meet with “people who eat the food” (from “Our World” by UN University)

They even have their own cute goat pet!!

You can also get “NORAH”, the magazine published by Farmers’ Market to investigate the role of food and agriculture in urban life. The magazine uses paper leftover at printing companies or dead paper stock therefore creating consciousness of our consumption of paper (total global consumption of paper, including card boards, in 2011 was 400 million tons!). You can support NOAH on FB Farmers' market

Check out Farmers’ Market Aoyama and get a taste of Spring vegetables and fruits!

I’d like to thank all the people who kindly let me shoot their stalls and produce for my blog… ありがとうございます!!

    Thanks for Water, Sun and Earth markets. Flowers wrapped in newspaper is practical and beautiful. It reminds me how much paper is being used every day.
