SAT 19th October SANUKI MARCHE presents Takamatsu City Central Wholesale Market Visit – Taste an Olive Yellow Tail! –
Tours organized by SANUKI MARCHE are much like a study group. Learn about Kagawa’s local produce & processed goods by visiting their growing districts and their distribution sites.
This time we will pay a special visit to the marine product section of Takamatsu City Central Wholesale Market.
Takamatsu City Central Wholesale Market uses Dutch auction system: a rare method nationwide.
In Dutch auction system, while prices are being gradually reduced, whoever raises a hand first is accepted.
This is the opposite of the standard bidding-up system, but it makes transactions move faster along with the unique finger signs representing encrypted numbers.
The auctions are usually closed to the public, but this tour lets you make a close observation of all the action.
Afterwards, we will taste marinated Olive Yellowtail Domburi and Kobachi (small bowl) for breakfast.
Moreover, you can purchase half a fillet of Olive Yellowtail sashimi at a market price upon request! (half a fillet serves roughly 10 people)
Please let us know upon application.
