Omi Cho Market, Kanazawa-shi Reviews - Write a Review
I loved the experience that you can buy the freshest sweet shrimp, oyster, uni and eat at the spot. I also bought boiled crab for take out, they cleaned and cut for easy eating. The markets has lots of eatery standings. It is really fun place to visit.
Excellent Food Come here to take advantage of the delicious food that you can purchase. Whether it's fresh Sushi, Sashimi, or Uni. Every corner offered something different. There are also several restaurants that you can eat at if you're early enough, or are willing to wait in line for. I would suggest looking to see what the locals purchase in terms of treats and goodies on the fly.
Very interesting indoor street market. Lots and lots of different types of fish and vegetables. A bit of meat is also displayed. Each entry has some restaurants mainly for bowls of fish and plates of sushi. Second floor is where you will find the restaurants. To access second floor you can use the escalators at the main entrance or by searching the toilets entry. (Most of them are in that second floor)
It's more local and less tourist-like than the one in Tokyo/Osaka/Kyoto. However, I don't find it to be much cheaper than eating at restaurant. It's also much smaller comparing in size. However, the seafood is delicious and fresh as you would expect! I don't think I'm in for the crab season (though they are at every stall - pretty frozen and not a loaded of, so I'm missing out on that one)! My favorite market would be the Osaka and Okinawa one if this is a factor with your Japan trip planning!
Love this market, not as crowded compared to nishiki or tsukuji but still offer delicious snacks and fruits: muscat and kyoho grapes, musk melons, enormous persimmons and figs
