  • Sanuki Marché, the event for vegetables, fruits, bread, boxed lunches and sweets, and for experiencing Kagawa

Sanuki Marché in Sunport takes place in the Sunport Takamatsu area on the third Sunday of the month. Sunport Takamatsu is a three-minute walk from JR Takamatsu Station.

Participants set up cute red and white tents at the venue. People, including families, people walking dogs and tourists, come to the venue.

At Sanuki Marché, there are crafts and foods such as vegetables, fruits, bread, precooked foods, sweets and beverages. All of the things you find there are freshly picked products, healthy foods, items that producers have made carefully and affectionately and other local Kagawa products.

Visitors look for producers' specialties and things only available at Sanuki Marché. You can learn how to enjoy rare vegetables or know unusual cooking methods for familiar vegetables there. It is one of the good things of Sanuki Marché.

Some other islanders come to the event to talk with producers.
Sometimes, producers and regular visitors get to know each other. If regular visitors ask producers to offer items they want, producers may develop new products. And sometimes, vendors collaborate to develop products that are only available at Sanuki Marché.

Sanuki Marché has a monthly theme, such as the blessings of the sea, fermentation, salt and soy sauce, or wheat and bread. You will naturally discover the culinary culture of Kagawa while shopping at the market.

Among the recent themes, curry was the most popular.

You can see crafts and experience food preparation, in addition to shopping.
