The Three-Eight Market 三八市 (さんぱちいち)

2013.10.07 (Mon)

38market

On every day in October with a 3 or an 8 in it,  Matsuzaki holds the morning “3-8 Market”, selling local and handmade goods. Traditionally, the stores here used to sell everyday goods and farming tools, attracting many buyers from the neighbouring towns of Tomari and Hashizu. These days, the town’s market stalls display pictures from years past, giving a retro look to the modern event. The market runs from 8:30am to 11am.

Place:  around Matsuzaki’s third ward

10月の3と8の付く日に松崎三区を中心に市が開かれます。昔は、日用雑貨や鍬、荒物などの農具、野菜などが店先に並び、近隣の泊や池向こうの浅津などからも買物に来る人が多くありました。現在、市とともに昔の写真が店先に飾られ、レトロな雰囲気も味わえます。

場所:湯梨浜町松崎 松崎三区周辺
