Now, what should I fancy more, the Basque ham or the Ladies? LOL
From Friday May 25th to Sunday 27th, as part of the events held during the 2012 Shizuoka-Cannes Week, a Marche/Market is held in Aoba Street in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City where many producers and shops, especially dealing in food and drinks, sell their specialties in open stands!
Shizuoka City and Cannes in France have been sister cities for quite a long time and citizens have taken into their hands the yearly celebration featuring a cinema week and many other events!
Still in preparation at 16:00!
Local food will be available in stands in Aoba Street on Friday 25th from 17:00 to 20:00, and on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th from 11:00 to 20:00!
Accordingly I came early on Friday to run a pre-report on the event!
