Different kinds of fish you can get in Akita Markets

The Akita Citizens Market is where locals come to find out the freshest fish, fruit and vegetables. In a compact city like Akita, word gets around quickly, so this free market action ensures that only the best and freshest produce of the land and sea are bought and sold. You may not understand the Akita dialect, but between animated gestures and friendly country laughter, you can have a great time here. Of course produce vary by the season, so come here in October for Masaba, and December for the best Hatahata fish.
