～The Hachinohe Local Market: A Selection of the Best Products from Around the Area & More～
Visit Hachinohe started the ‘YouTree Renewal Project’ to improve visitor’s experiences when they come to the Hachinohe Station and the neighboring YouTree Building. As part of this project, Visit Hachinohe has started holding the monthly Hachinohe Local Market.
The Hachinohe Local Market will take place every month on a selected weekend. The market will have two parts. The first part of the market will feature local select products, consisting of different specialty products from the local area, for sale. Some of the items will be classic favorites, while others will be new and limited-time-only products made just for the event.
The other half of the market will conversely offer specialty products from around Japan. Each month, a different city from around Japan will be selected and specialty products from that city will be presented and available for purchase.
The first Hachinohe Local Market will feature local sea urchins during a Sea Urchin Fair from 6/15 to 6/16, and the first specialty products from around Japan will feature some great items from the city of Imabari.
