The A-Factory has a good range of local produce with an emphasis on Apples, which Aomori is famous for. There is even an apple cidre (that's how they spell it) tasting area.

A-Factory is just a 5 minute walk from Aomori Train Station. This place is great for browsing, sampling and buying local produce and souvenirs. There is a great coffee shop that make thier own fruitcakes and there is also a burger shop where you can buy lunch. Great for buying small amounts of local food for sampling or formal souvenirs...

There are also a couple of places to eat and drink in the back and 2nd floor and it looked like they had a microbrew for apple cider beer as... More

This is a nicely built and big store by the waters selling and show casing Aomori agricultural based produce, especially those made from apples. An operating apple cider brewery is built into this same building where one can see it through big glass windows. We enjoyed our visit here.
