We arrived during the new year period. Fortunately there were some resturants & eateries operating. Do checkout Mori Mori Sushi Restaurant & Oden eatery! Worth the wait :)))

I went there with my husband, who joined a marathon race. We really enjoyed fresh seafood and an exotic atmosphere in Oumicho-Market.

Most days you have to get up early to experience the market in full flight but on Saturday we visited mid-morning and it was buzzing. We had breakfast here twice and both times it was great. One place has " the mountain" which is a real experience for lovers of fresh exotic seafood.

Love to visit the local market in Japan, Omi-cho Market is also named the "Kanazawa Kitchen" in which you can find fresh seafood, kitchen tools and also local ingredients for cooking.

If you've seen other fish markets and produce markets, like those in Tsukiji, Tokyo, there won't be much here to impress. The prices are a bit high. It's fun to stroll through, even if you're not going to buy anything.

Just a stone's throw away from my ryokan. A well stocked seafood market and fresh produce. Market is a fraction in size compared to the one in Osaka but not lacking in food variety. Prices are also reasonably lower than major city markets. Less crowded and pleasant to navigate compared to Tsukiji.

Spend an hour or so walking around here: the sights and sounds are incredible, and the stall holders really friendly and polite.
