While Tokyo's Tsukiji Market and Kyoto's Nishiki Market can be pretty crowded, Omicho Market is more quiet. We saw more locals going out and about to do some shopping than tourists: it had a more authentic vibe.
This food market opens and 9 am and closes at 5 pm, so we decided to go there for lunch and were surprised by the quality and quantity of the food offered. There are hundreds of stalls, selling fish, fruit or meat. Many of the things they sold we didn't even recognize, as we don't have them in Italy!
We had so much fun in what looked like a colorful maze, where almost every stall sold bits of tasty local delicacies or bento boxes. In the end we decided to get a little bit of several things: sushi bites, onigiri (rice balls) filled with fresh tuna, but also yakitori (skewers) and dango. Everything was cheap but absolutely delicious!
In the afternoon the food is sometimes offered at discounted prices, because they have to sell everything before they close the market.

Absolutely love this market. Has excellent selection of fresh seafood. Also fun for tourists with plenty of stalls and restaurants to eat on the spot. Lots types of fish and shellfish available, sushi and sashimi freshly prepared. Good prices. Try the raw scallops for something different. Good local alternative to Tokyo's Tsukiji market.
