Recently I stumbled upon about 600 grams (a little over a pound) of beets at Shun Shoku Lounge for 520 yen (tax included).
This tiny shop in Grand Front Osaka, sells fresh veggies as well as other food items too.
The beets weren't too big, about the size of golf balls.
We enjoyed them for two meals, roasted in the oven with olive oil and a little balsamic vinegar.
I have been slowly seeing more "rare" veggies like beets, brussels sprouts and swiss chard at smaller fruit stand type of shops.
Hope this trend starts to pick up.
Have a nice weekend!
