Love, love wondering through the farmers market at the UN University between Omotesando and Shibuya stations. Over 70 vendors come to sell their fresh produce, honey, rice and more. There are also food and drink trucks for hearty appetites. My kids and I bike to the market and spend an hour or so tasting the samples. We never walk away empty-handed, usually buying more than enough to fill our bike baskets. A lot of the produce is also organic. This time of year, you will find delicious mushroom, pumpkins and sweet potatoes try these recipes for pumpkin and sweet potatoes. Enjoy the fresh season harvest.
