Morning Market (Nishichi no Ichi)
This morning market held at Omachi 3 chome was first started in October of 1883 at the request of an officer of the army 13th division, who requested a regular market so his soldiers could have fresh vegetables when they were in Takada.
From that beginning, regular citizens started using the market, as well as people connected with the military who were often seen buying large quantities at the market.
The Nishichi Market moved to its present location in 1960, and takes place on days containing a 2 ("ni") and 7 ("shichi").
The market has been popular with visitors throughout the country who come to enjoy the flavor of local kitchens as well as the fragrance of local culture.
