Organic Vegetables from Shizuoka Prefecture with Aritsune Akutsu!


My market of the day!
Top left to right: green kohlrabi, dark orange-violet carrots, golden carrots, black daikon.
Bottom left to right: Hinosai turnips, red ginger.


Aritsune Atsuku is the link that all true producers wish to make their vegetables known and sell them.
Aritsune is always on the look out for producers who grow great organic vegetables and help them sell them with the ones he and his produce themselves.
He has a shop, “Real Food market” in Baban-Cho (report to come soon!), Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City, but toady he was selling the products of 5 farmers from Fujieda City and Fujinomiya City on the basement floor of Isetan Department Store in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City, to try and reach a larger clientele and persuade consumers that the quality of the healthy vegetable he was selling was worth their price!


Aristune has a true passion for healthy food and organic vegetables in particular, although he is not a vegetarian.
Let’s have a look at what he was selling today!
