Fresh produce

Rusutsu is famous for its ski field, resort and the outlying farmlands. These farm lands produce a large variety of fresh and delicious vegetables. Rusutsu is especially famous for its daikon (radish), asparagus (green, white & purple), and potatoes. Fresh vegetables of the season are delivered directly to Farmers’ Market, making it a popular place to buy groceries for a cheap price! This supermarket is connected right next to Rusutsu Pizza Do, so it’s also a good spot to grab some lunch.

Flowers on sale

The selection is quite vast, and each product is brought in by individual farmers. Anything from celery to chili peppers, every product has a picture of the farmer and information about them. It would be hard to find a better bargain in Hokkaido than at Farmer’s Market. Prices for cabbages, pumpkins, onions can be as little as ¥100, so there are many bargains to be found. Not are there vegetables to be found, but there are soups, seasoning, an assortment of breads, and flowers.
