I like to go there. The morning market in Niitsu is held on the following days of a month. Niitsu is a town in Akiha-ward of Niigata city, JAPAN.
1st, 6th, 11th, 16th, 21st, and 26th days of a month, from 8:00 a.m. to noon
Of course I went to her shop to buy Kimchi.
And I always go to papa’s&mom’s fruit shop near Yamashita-san’s Kimchi shop.
Now it is no longer the season apple, I don’t see any good and reasonable apples in nearby supermarket. I had expected that his shop would be still selling apples.My expectation was right. His shop was selling the yellow apple “Shinano-Gold” which is a new apple with good balance of sweetness and sour taste. He was selling them with very reasonable prices because Shinano-gold apples have scratches and a little colored portions. They were usually not on the shelves in ordinary supermarkets.
Flowers are being sold. If you plant those seedlings on your garden, you can enjoy the flowers from the day-1 without waiting to grow and for so long until winter comes.
Fishes are also being sold. I thinks one portion of squids is too much. Only a big family will be able to buy.
This small shop is selling vegetables and white collar flowers.
When it comes to Flowers, I asked this lady to make a flower bundle. Just before I left home, I was asked by my mom to buy the flowers to offer my dad.
So these are what I bought yesterday in the Niitsu Morning Market.
Chinese cabbage kimchi: 700-yen
Radish Kimchi: 500-yen
Shinano-Gold apple: 500-yen
Tribute Flowers: 1000-yen
Butterbur (Green Stems in the photo): 200-yen
An old lady told me how to cook the butterbur. I cooked as she told me, but I spent an hour to peel off them. I boiled them by soy sauce with small chips of ginger and red pepper.
Thanks for reading to the end.
