The Omicho Fish Market has been the backbone of Kanazawa’s kitchens for over 300 years. A bustling fish market with over 180 shops, this is the place to enjoy local seafood, Kaga vegetables, and confectioneries. Hungry for a rice bowl topped with seafood? Buying fresh seafood at a fish shop? The market is always lively, and is the place to learn the best ways to select and cook fish from the fish purveyors themselves—one of the best ways to enjoy the market. Savor Kanazawa’s famed crab at this market every year from November 6th to the end of March. This is the tastiest time in one of the tastiest locales of Kanazawa.
