Join the Crowd and Meet the Creators—Let’s Go To the Market!

Le marché—or the market—is a popular “people’s kitchen” in its birthplace of Europe. Its numbers are increasing in Tokyo each year, too, and markets are held regularly, usually on weekends, in various places throughout the metropolitan area. The beauty of the market, of course, is that it attracts a diverse assortment of creators who sell everything from fresh vegetables and fruit to bread and other food, to even artistic products like sundries and accessories. Experience the joy of shopping around the stalls while hearing the stories behind the products directly from their creators.
