Omi Cho Market, Kanazawa-shi Reviews
There are so many ways to enjoy this market -- eat in, take it and go, dine in. The one suggestion I would make is to shop around and compare. The produce was almost always amazingly fresh and very reasonable. The seafood was diverse and varied in prep from whole fish/shells to dried and packaged. It seemed like the center of the market had better product although we also found great buys on the outer segments. This is a large market with plenty of vendors so take your time and enjoy.
Kanazawa fresh seafood market - here you can buy fresh seafood from Sea of Japan and have it directly!!! Wide variety of selections -Fresh crabs, oyster, octopus, fishes, etc... every one of them looks delicious. Came here on Saturday afternoon , it wasn’t as crowded and not as huge as those in Tokyo. We could slowly walk and enjoy the local market atmosphere and tried out different foods... Highly recommended if you are here at Kanazawa. Come with an empty stomach.
Great colorful local market. We've arrived in morning time and all the stalls offered great fish & vegetables that were exceptional looking good. Everything was very clean. However, it isn't that big compare to other markets in other Japanese cities.
Like the variety of fresh produce. Restaurants serving high quality seafood. Smaller portions than expected. Eat again outside of the market.
300 years old huge local market with wide variety of stores offering excellent shopping experiences. Great place to try the wide selection of seafoods. A bit pricey but guarantee fresh and good quality. Clean and bright atmosphere. Friendly shopping environment for both Japanese and foreign visitors. Highly recommend!!
