You will easily find a Michi-no-eki farmer’s market in the countryside of Japan. I visited the Michi-no-eki in Miyama, Kyoto.
Here, you can find almost all the products that are made by local farmers like vegetables, beans, fruits, pickles, eggs, milk, miso and local crafts. The vegetables, fruits, milk and eggs are collected every morning by the farmers. They bring their own products to the market and put them on display. The products are reasonably priced. At the Michi-no-eki in Miyama, which is located next to the Miyama Milk Factory, you can enjoy fresh milk and ice cream.
Miyama is located about 30 kilometers north of central Kyoto. In addition to the famous thatched roof (kayabuki) farmhouses, you can enjoy a variety of foods that are produced in Miyama. Just like the other markets in other rural areas, Michi-no-eki in Miyama is exciting.
Michi-no-eki has restrooms, restaurants and tourist information centers. You can use the Michi-no-eki as a parking spot to take a break from driving, for bathroom breaks and so on.
