Since its opening in 1721, Omicho Market has been much loved by locals as “Kanazawa’s kitchen.” It was extended in 2009 with the opening of a new building, “Omicho Ichiba-kan,” including 186 stalls. Located in the center of Kanazawa, it is a busy food market offering local fish, vegetables, fruits, sweets, and flowers, etc. The market’s restaurants serve the best Kaisen-don (seafood on top of rice).
