Call for Donations for the Nikkei Spring Bazaar

The Spring Bazaar at Nikkei Centre is returning on Saturday, May 13 from 11am-4pm. Shoppers come out to discover Japanese items, tastes, and plants.

We are graciously accepting donations of

  • Gently used Japanese items
  • Spring plants
  • 6” plant pots

Please contact us if you are able to donate items before coming to drop them off. Contact: Yukiko at [email protected]


What is the Nikkei Spring Bazaar

The Nikkei Spring Bazaar is hosted by the NNMCC together with the NNMCC Auxiliary volunteer group, as a place to discover Japanese items, spring plants, and Nikkei food at reasonable prices. Admission will be free for the public.

The NNMCC Auxiliary volunteer group raises funds by selling donated items at the Flea Market. They typically sell new and gently used Japanese items such as tableware, home decor, Japanese dolls, kimono and yukata. Public vendors join the flea market and may sell non-Japanese items.

We rely heavily on community gardeners to donate Spring Plants, which are sold by NNMCC Auxiliary volunteers. A variety of plants, flowers, vegetables and herbs are welcome, especially Japanese plants such as Shiso, Kabocha, and myoga. Non-Japanese plans are also welcome.

Food is always a popular part of our events. NNMCC Auxiliary volunteers usually prepare a variety of tasty Nikkei foods including their signature manju. Public vendors sell packaged or ready-to-eat food. We usually have one food truck on site. 

We thank all volunteers, donors, vendors and visitors for their support. Check out how to join our team of volunteers and other ways to support us.
