I found this great shop the other day. They sell vegetables and other products that are made in Tokorozawa. I bought some fresh edamame and kabocha (pumpkin).
One thing I like about this place is that they sell fresh vegetables that are in season. If you go to a supermarket now, you can find just about any vegetable and fruit, regardless of the season. I mean, it's great when you want to make something...but it makes you forget the natural cycle. I think this is a great way to appreciate seasonal food.
The store is open from 9am to 6pm. Mondays are closed.
They would also appreciate it if you would bring your own shopping bags.
