There is a relatively new shop in Kawanishi (two train stops from our station) called Crazy Pantry, run by Wakuwaku Hiroba.
You'll find fresh veggies as well as cooking condiments from all parts of Japan.
I've been picking up cherry tomatoes from this place...vine ripened goodness!
This was also the place I purchased the veggies for Masakichi's pickles at.
Yesterday, I spotted something new called "dragon red", a variety of potato.
These potatoes are quite tiny, like fingerlings.
But when you cut them open they are a light pink to medium fuchsia.
I roasted these and they were delicious.
Can't wait to see what other veggies Crazy Pantry will have next.
