Hakodate Morning Market 函館朝市

The Hakodate Morning Market is a one-minute walk from JR Hakodate Station, and is said to have originated in 1945 when farmers from neighboring towns and villages brought fruits and vegetables to sell in front of Hakodate Station. Hakodate Morning Market is widely known as a tourist spot in Hakodate, with approximately 280 stores and 1.8 to 2 million visitors annually. The market is a lively place where you can find fresh foods unique to Hokkaido, such as squid, crab, salmon and other seafood, as well as places where you can eat fresh seafood on the spot. It is recommended to visit the market as early as possible as the market can run out of goods by mid-afternoon, and events such as the Hakodate Morning Market Citizen’s Thanksgiving Festival in June and the Hakodate Morning Market Christmas Festa in December are always held there.
