Aoyama Farmers’ Market is one of Tokyo’s longest-running and best-attended markets in town. Every Saturday and Sunday, you can find the market in front of the UNU university’s headquarters. The farmers themselves man their stalls selling organic and local fruits and veggies.
You can also find a wide range of other goods such as honey, oils, spices and pastries. And last weekend, you could also enjoy the lovely fair “Nordic Lifestyle Market – a quiet day”.
There were a lot of stalls to check out and here are some of my choices…
Fikafabriken is the brainchild of Ai Sekiguchi. Ai-san studied in Sweden and she is fascinated with the Scandinavian sweets and the culture of “Fika“. Fika is a concept in Swedish culture with the basic meaning “to have coffee“, often accompanied with pastries or sandwiches. Her stand was so cute fill with delicious Swedish Christmas cookies. Order her cookies and have a taste of Sweden! Check Ai’s cookies HERE
Russell Jokella, is a wood worker currently living in Japan. He mostly creates order made furniture but every year he also designs these beautiful Christmas trees. He mixes several kinds of natural wood, with different colours and grains and carefully finishes them with oil. Follow him HERE
Delicious Danish food prepared by Cafe Daisy. Hard to explain and even harder to pronounce, the Danish word ‘hygge’ (pronounced ‘hooga’) translates roughly to ‘coziness’ and that’s the feeling Cafe Daisy recreates in their Danish cuisine restaurant.
Super cool “Bicycle Coffee” started in 2009 as a family project which combined the love for riding bicycles and drinking good coffee. They started in San Francisco building a small-batch roaster and began roasting beans. Once they were confident in their roasts, they hopped on their bikes and started to deliver bags of coffee. Great design + delicious coffee ♡
