Aoyama Farmers Market
This organic farmer’s market takes place in front of the United Nations University in Aoyama every Saturday and Sunday. There are about 50 stalls with local producers selling fresh fruit, vegetables, and flowers.
10:00-16:00 every Saturday and Sunday. The market is also held on public holidays.
This L-shaped area of shacks, caravans, food stalls, craft beer, and good coffee was originally set up as a temporary venue under the name Commune 246. It’s a fantastic little “for the community” venue that recreates something of an East London feel. A great place for a beer when the weather is good.
