Great place to eat lunch and do some shopping. Can be very busy on the weekend so I would suggest going on a weekday.

We spent about 3-4 hours including lunch.

They obviously overcharge because it is popular with tourists who are willing to pay. But if you like markets it is worth a visit, lots of sushi for sale and a few small Korean food kiosks.

Lovely place to explore, full of fresh produce. Started our day touring the market with food purchases along the way which kept us full till the afternoon!

Items sold are really fresh and worth every penny spend! Must visit place for the experience and atmosphere! :)

i love the kuromon market because you get to see and buy deliscious food coked right in front of you. I loved the champoy, the squid, fuji apple that was so sweet and the huge and sweet strawberries. there are much more food delicacies to choose from and it is near out hotel sunroute in niponbashi . I even saw the biggest crab in my life.

The Kuromon market offers many a special treat that will be hard to find in any market in Germany, where I live. Hence it is quite the spectacular walk through that can very well be combined with a visit to Osaka castle! There are numerous snack shacks that offer local specialities on the go - many of which will probably be too much for you! A treat that will be particularly special for seafood lovers out there...

Kuromon Market is one of those places where tourists must go at least once to experience being in a fresh and dried food market. There are many beautiful Japanese fruits that you can buy such as strawberries, cherries, peaches, melons, etc. depending on the season. Kuromon Market is after all, a market so it will appeal to those who are interested in fresh or dried food, otherwise you can try out one of the restaurants in there.

We came late February when there was already a huge drop in tourist in Japan. For us, it was a great thing because the market was not busy at all during lunch hour and we did not have to dodge crowd.

It is a block of roofed strip mall near Nippombashi station, very short walk.

Shopkeepers were eager to offer samples and there were plenty of hand sanitizer stations around for us to use. We had takoyaki, warm soy milk, unagi kabayaki, etc. There are plenty of souvenir shops, from skin-care products to local crafts, at a large price range. One can spend a whole afternoon here just browsing the wares offered.

Some store does not take credit cards, so be prepared to come with some small bills.

If street food is what you desire, and you are hitting up Kyoto as well, I think Nishiki Market in Kyoto gives better food options.

This "market" is really just a short street with small shops that would be similar in nature to what you would find in an American strip mall - only Japanese.
Some reviewers have said the people were friendly and a few of them were, mostly the older shop owners who weren't so interested in getting your money. But there were plenty of rude or condescending shop keepers too. And plenty of locals who clearly didn't want you there.
I would chalk up the rudeness of the locals mostly to the fact that I am a really big guy and the street was crowded at that time and I frequently found myself in someone's way - but that is because they knew exactly what they wanted, where to get it and were in a hurry to buy and leave, I was a tourist window shopping.
You can find anything from the cheapest trinkets all the way up to expensive fashion on this street, so be prepared for a variety of situations and kinds of people.
