Omi Cho Market, Kanazawa-shi Reviews

  • Best before noon, this open air market covering multiple blocks and offers numerous seafood and produce vendors with on the spot tastings of the freshest sea urchin, oysters, crabs, and other delicious morsels

  • Fish market surrounded by nice restaurant if you have some time left nice to visit but can't be compared to the nichiki market in kyoto and of course the Tokyo fish market

  • Covered and far less busy than Tsujiki. Plentiful fish, vegetable and other interesting stalls and many opportunities to try things. Liked it alot!

  • It's a market, nothing much to it Have alot of fish stands, vegetables and small restaurants, worth a visit

  • Was very busy when we walked in for a table for 2 with no reservation. Unfortunately we were turned away and told the next available table was at 9:30pm. We took this as a good sign and returned then, and we were glad we did. The waitress was lovely, spoke flawless English and was very friendly and helpful. She recommended a sake which we had warm (very welcome after having just trudged through the snow to the restaurant) and offered some food recommendations. There wasn't a dish we didn't like but the Sashimi was a standout, as were the sauteed scallops. After a sake and several delicious share plates, my partner and I left full and satisfied having only paid ¥7600 which, for the quality of the food, we were very happy with. Will definitely be back if we find ourselves in Kanazawa again.
