This market is known for rich assortments of fresh foods and its lively atmosphere. It is loved by the locals as a “pantry of Hakata.” It seems that the market started with an owner-run shop selling on the two-wheeled cart fresh fish stocked in the Ohama market in the early 20th Century. The market started growing when other shops joined in the neighborhood. It is now a popular spot in Hakata, representing it as a gourmet town. It is always busy, with professional chefs as well as regular people shopping there. Unique and lively greetings and shouts from the shop owners add to the charm of the market. Closed on Sundays and holidays, unfortunately.
