Gate Three Market

Sick of shopping at the commiscary?  Get off base!  Get your mirror dented, use your windshield wipers instead of your turn signals and get lost!!!  I know its overwhelming at first, but you are on an island… you can only go so far!!!

The first and easiest one from Kadena is what I call the “Gate 3 Market”.  I came up with this very catchy name because its easiest to get to coming from… you guessed it: Gate 3!!

Directions:

  • Be on Kadena
  • Go out Gate Three  (Ok, back up.  Get on Douglas, pass Burger King (itll be on your right) and keep going.  Pass the recycling center turn off.  Yes, theres a recycling center on Kadena!!)
  • Go straight through the light.  (Stop if its red… well you can keep going, but put your right hand up, nod your head a bit and hope no one is jumping the gun.)
  • Pass Camp Shields (that’s where Naps is)
  • Pass B.C Motors (Why don’t they use a second period? That drives me nuts)
  • Go straight through the stop light that says turn to go see the Southeast Botanical Gardens (newly opened and now on my to-do list!)
  • Pass a graffeti pachinko parlor (which I think with the right TLC would be an awesome place for RCFA… just saying)
  • Now slow down, turn left when you see this itty bitty sign
turn left at the green sign

Missed it?  Its ok, turn left at the next drive way!!  If you come to a T-intersection- you went too far!

This is actually called a “JA Market“.  They have tons of fresh yummy goodness.  Check it!  Bring your yen or credit cards!  Open 7 days a week.

    I love JA. I used to go to one close to the convention center in Ginowan. The best tomatoes ever. Everything else pretty amazing as well. I used to buy pigs’ feet therenfor my post WOD snack. It has a fish market in the same building as well.
    Love reading your posts Jess!
