We (myself, wife and two girls aged 9 and 10) visited Kyoto in mid-July 2018, right up to the Gion-Matsuri Festival. We found the market to be very crowded, and also, a little too touristy for our liking. However, the atmosphere was great, and there...More
Nishiki market was the top of our list when we came to Kyoto.
There is some great food on offer and a lot of sweet options.
I regret having not bought a pair of tabi (ninja socks) while we were there.

Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes. Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall
windows of several one-of-a-kind stores featuring local labels and modish boutiques. Arcades, outdoor concert spaces, mega department stores, and small, enchanting cafes have sprung up to accommodate the increasing traffic. Whether looking for souvenirs and kitsch on Shinkyogoku Street, or scoping out the massive food court and restaurant floor at Takashimaya Department store, there's something for every wallet or purse, and a buyer for every item.

The Nishiki market does not open until about 10am. Good to get there early before the crowds and before it gets too hot. There are long queues where the food is popular. Check the website for open days because the fish market part where they do the fancy cutting up fish demonstrations is sometimes closed on a Wednesday.
It is a good place to buy hand painted crockery in stalls. Not sure what time the market closes but we spent about an hour and a half there. Great vibes.
