Facebook and I am glad I could finally visit in person on Sunday morning on a gorgeous day. There are a number of similar pop-up markets around Tokyo but I think this one at the campus of United Nations University (UNU) near Aoyama is the largest of its kind and the most convenient to get to, right in between Shibuya and Omotesando metro stations.
Tong Chong Street Market running on Sundays in my neighborhood, wasn't that far behind by any means, if you look at the variety of food on sale (raw or cooked) and the line-up of vendors every week. It just showed how far we have gone, from almost nothing to what we have right now, a vibrant market scene with a supportive community more aware of where their food came from and willing to embrace the local food culture. But okay, next issue to tackle, let's bring in some REAL food trucks.
