Farmer’s market at UNU

Day 19 of NaBloPoMo and continuing with a regular feature “Tokyo Thursday”.

On a recent trip to Tokyo to get my hair done in Toni & Guy, Aoyama branch, I had the most wonderful walk through Shibuya. So much to discover on even a short walk through Tokyo Streets. My most alarming find was the UNITED NATIONS UNIVERSITY. UNU! I had absolutely no idea such a place existed, least of all in the modern Aoyama region of Shibuya. When I got home, I was even more delighted when my research revealed that a farmer’s market is held there EVERY weekend.

There are some great WORDPRESS blog posts in English about the market, with fantastic photos to boot:

There are quite a few posts and details on Stephanie’s blog, however, do note they are from 3 or 4 years ago. https://stephanietsai.wordpress.com/tag/unu-farmers-market/

  1. Nice post! This us a great market, but there are a number of others throughout the city over the course of a month. This coming weekend is the Earth Day Market – all organic and fair trade – and every Saturday there is a very nice on in Roppongi. Have fun!

    1. Thank you so much for your comment and for the great information. I don’t suppose you know of anything like this in Saitama ? Thankfully, Tokyo is close enough to commute to occasionally ????

  2. Oooooo! I love the new look of your blog. 🙂 Very nice!
    I love farmers markets, actually any type of market I love… except maybe the grocery store. 🙂

    1. I have been experimenting with the layout, but it’s so hard to choose. I loved the las one, but it’s no longer compatible since they upgraded or shifted something or other. Nearly lost content with the change. :-p You did a great job finding a layout that matches your blog.
