Located inside the Heiwa Dori shopping arcade, Makishi Public Market is home to dozens of fishmongers, butchers, and grocers. The vast range of exotic locally sourced produce on display combined with the energetic atmosphere make the market worth a visit even if you don’t plan on buying anything. Although there is an impressive range of top quality fresh meat and fish available, including lobsters, shrimps, and Okinawan speciality pigs feet, difficulties associated with transporting it home hinders most tourists' interest. Fortunately, there are restaurants on the market's second floor which will serve up your freshly bought meat or fish for a small charge. Take your pick from a choice of cooking styles or have your fish prepared as sashimi. Non-perishable items on sale which may be of interest to tourists are dried fish and seaweed, spices, and Okinawan herbal tea.
