  • Honcho-shimo Market
    Niigata Niigata-shi Chuo-ku Honchodori 12 , 13
    This Shimomachi market stands in line with the Fresh Honcho shopping street connecting 12 Ban-cho and 13 Ban-cho on the Hon-cho-dori Street. Open year round excluding Sundays, here visitors can purchase vegetables, seafood, flowers, clothing, and more. Consisting of street stalls integrated into the shopping street, the history of this market is believed to stretch back all the way to the early Meiji period. In recent years, the number of establishments has declined, but one can still hear shopkeepers cheerfully calling out to attract customers. The area where the market is located, known as Shimo-machi, is one of the oldest in the city and has flourished as a port area for ages. Looking at the establishments, visitors can imagine what the area looked like long ago when kitamaebune cargo ships would stop at the port.

    A market held on every day of the month ending in a “2” or a “7.” The market’s name translates to “the market of six celebrations,” a reference to the number of times it is held each month. Held continuously since 1919, the market consists of some 150 stalls stretching from Oshagiri Hall (Murakami History Museum) to an alley in Sanno-cho. Here you can find a wide variety of things for sale, including seasonal fresh vegetables, seafood, local specialty products, edible wild plants, and fresh flowers.
