Yuji Haraguchi recently opened a Japanese-style fish market called 'Osakana' in the heart of Brooklyn, New York. With a growing number of consumers opting for foods that are seasonal and locally sourced, this market serves as a valuable resource.
Osakana originally began as a Kickstarter-funded idea and has since transformed into a physical retail space. The store is located in Williamsburg and sells a wide selection of local and seasonal fish. In addition to its seafood offerings, the market also offers prepared foods, tasting sessions and classes on cooking Japanese dishes such as ramen and sashimi.
With the rise of niche grocers and the growing demand for local food, this Japanese-style fish market is likely to be a hit among conscious consumers.
