Kamakura grown vegetables 鎌倉野菜,


  Kamakura Yasai 鎌倉野菜 is the vegetables that are harvested in the land of Kamakura.  They are produced based on 1) Locally produced and consumed, 2) Direct sales which does not pass through the middlemen.


  That vegetable has become a famous brand recently because it has good taste and high quality.  Various kinds of vegetables are made as Kamakura Yasai instead of being limited to the specific vegetable.


  It's almost impossible to get them at shops in other regions because they are not on the broad distribution network, but anyone can buy those vegetables at local vegetable stores and Kamakura Farmers Market near Kamakura station.
