I know this guy! LOL
The cities of Shizuoka and Cannes in France (you know, the Cannes Film Festival!) have been sister cities for quite a while now.
The citizens of Shizuoka have been holding their own event every year in the middle of May in Shikencho street in Aoi kU in Shizuoka City.
This year Agrigraph joined the event as a great opportunity to introduce local farmers and their produce.
This year the event is held on May 14th and 15th from 13:00 to 17:00 in Shichikencho. You still have tomorrow left! Do visit and I can garantee you will discover quite a few things to your liking!
Anyway I visited the event today and I hope this quick report will encourage you to have a good look tomorrow!
I actually visited the place twice before the start and later in the afternoon!
The Agrigraph staff busy organizing their stand!
This stand was designed especially to show and seel farmers’ produce!
Unpacking the goodies!
Red orange jam pamphlets!
Enormous zucchini harvested in the morning!
Beautiful turnips. The leaves and stems make for great soups and pickles!
Busy writing the boards!
Not only in Japanese, but also in French!
I came back later to see how things were going.
I found the Shizuoka Prefecture Agricultural High School busy selling their famous bread and cakes!
Busy cutting samples to taste!
I found some good friends like Matsukiya Wine Shop selling French wines!
There were all kinds of shops selling curios, wares, souvenirs and wahtnot!
Cooking ware from France!
Cute little things!
A bycicle taxi, Japanese version!
Back to the Agrigraph stand…
So much great food to try there!
I love these mixed sets. Quite a few of the vegetables were organic.
Sampling the farmers’ jams!
I know that the kid was after the little tomatoes!
See you tomorrow!
