“Easy option for vegetarians to fill up on rice & veg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

The Fresh Market we visited isn't the one shown in the images on this page, which is a fish market in the basement of the Auga department store, but the reviews sound like the place we went to, which is on Nico-Nico dori, near to the Nakasan department store. There are a few rice selling stalls in this market, indicated by the "Don" symbol (丼) on a brown flag. Here you can buy a book of 5 or 10 tickets. One ticket gets you a regular sized bowl of rice, two get you a large portion. After that, you can spend your tickets at any stall with the "Don" symbol on a blue flag. We found burdock (gobou in Japanese), green beans with tofu, tamago omelette, pickles, and mushroom dishes at a couple of stalls. Once you have your selection of sample trays, you choose a seat in one of the seating areas and enjoy your meal. There is free water and tea at the seating areas. For non-vegetarians, there is a huge range of fresh fish to choose from. It was really good food and a great way to try out different Japanese foods.

“Amazing selection of fresh fruit, vegetables and fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

I love Japanese food markets and this one is no exception. We didn't try the option to buy a bowl of rice and then purchase your seafood and vegetable toppings from various vendors, but it all looked so fresh and inviting. A must-try for those keen to try something authentically Japanese

“Smells great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

They have delicious and fresh seafood, which you can buy a bow of rice and walk around buying small portions of sea food, raw food!
Better visit during morning time. More variety and for sure you'll have really fresh food.
