This place is great if you want to experience a part of daily Kanazawa life. The market is really lively, the produce is super fresh... by gods the fish looked so delicious I would have eaten them whole right there. Do yourself a favor and go without luggage unlike what we did. We passed by on our way back to Kanazawa station, and we would have much preferred to be able to browse the area more thoroughly!

This place was a surprise - its an old-style fish and vegetable market tucked in behind new buildings - but its pretty cool. Lots of fish and foodstuff you wont recognize - but worth popping in.

Bought a beautiful blouse and pants here with sizes that accommodate the largeness of westerners--Omi shop is definitely worth a visit. Had a seafood soup with crab and sweet clams for starters during out walk and nosh breakfast. Ogled the beautiful seafood. At hot fried chicken and fresh sweet watermelon. There is a Starbuck's right across the street for coffee addicts. It is fun, low key, and there are beautiful flower arrangements to inspire you at the florists scattered around the market.
