I love going here for many reasons! It's not at all out of the way or difficult to find, and they've got such a great selection of products to choose from.
I shop here every year for stocking stuffers for my husband for Yule/Christmas, and I visit throughout the rest of the year as often as possible. I've had some of the best tempura from this market!
The only downside for me is that I've got to plan ahead on what to make for dinner if I'm shopping here for ingredients, just because I don't read Japanese. I've got to look up the names of products to look for specifically and write down what the Hirigana/Katakana/Kanji for it is, so that I can find it! But it's not that difficult.
In summary, great place, fun stuff, but know your Japanese or do research.
Wonderful Shop. I love going to this store. They are always friendly, and I can always find wonderful foodstuffs and unique items from Japan locally!
Great shop and bento, people are very nice..
I like there a lot! very nice people,
they try to get stuff if a customer wish to get it.
Great Bento boxes. Sage Farm is one of the oldest Japanese establishments in town. Originally located in Japan town next to the buddhist temple, it relocated with the Salt Palace Expansion years ago. Recently the ownership of the original family sold to a Japanese lady from Okinawa. The prices have become a bit more competitive w/ the asian food store on 7th east. But the best part of the store is the introduction of bento boxes, donburi (ricebowl), and sushi pack lunches. Although not as good as my mom's, the $6 bento beats fast food anyday. Another Japanese coworker and I eat here at least once a week. (he's actually there almost everyday) Support a local mom & pop shop and get a great lunch while your there.
