Hi everyone.

I'm in Japan for the next 8 weeks or so. I'm in Niiza, Saitama.

Can someone please point me in the direction of some food markets that may be nearby, or within an hours distance?

I'm a little overwhelmed. I've been living off 7/11 food and noodle cups and vending machine foods for the last 10 days, and I'm starting to feel run down.

Now that I have moved into my little apartment, I have a refrigerator and pantry. I went to the local Olympic store, but meat is so expensive, as are most vegetables.

I imagine with all the farmers and fishermen, there must be markets or stands where they sell cheaper produce, fish, and eggs?

I heard that Tsukiji sells more than just fish, but are the prices higher than suburb markets because of more tourists?

I walked around this neighborhood early morning, and I only found one stand, but they mostly only had cabbage and carrots.

I'm looking for fruit, vegetables, eggs, and fish.

Thank you so much for any help.

I'm sure there are plenty near you! Can you ask your landlord?

Do you live near Shiki Sation? There is a large Saty store there, which is one of many Japanese chains
