This busy market is full of fresh seafood and loved by Hakata locals as the “pantry of Hakata.” It started in 1916, when an individual stall selling fresh fish from the Ohama Market became popular and other stalls gathered around it. Now it is one of the main features of the town of Hakata and always busy with wholesalers and shoppers. Not only are merchants selling here, but also are regular housewives, creating a lively atmosphere. The brisk voices of the sellers add authenticity to the wonderful market.
