Traditional Market of Kokura city
There are many shops and restaurants
You can watch around them, and if you have a challenge mind, you can try many traditional Kokura's gourmet.
For example, Nuka-miso-daki, it's a kind of fermented fishes. Tsuke-mono, japanese pickles, and so on.

People are very friendly, but busy while morning and late afternoon because many dwellers shops for preparing lunch and dinner. So if you want to enjoy, avoiding these timing is recommended.

From Kokura Station you can walk (10min) or ride the Kokura monorail. We came later in the morning, but we were lucky that there were still many stands open. You can buy delicious karaage (fried) foods here for a great price! Many other snacks are also available.

Like any market, you are more likely to get a better choice if you come early.

Like any public market, most of the action happens in the morning. By the afternoon, there are only a few items left. I personally like to visit public markets of places I go to just to see what is available in the local area.

You can buy a lot of snacks around this strip - I got ohagi and some rice/bean cakes.
You can see great cuts of meat, lots of seafood, and just a lot of food in general. There's also a grocery near the entrance, which sells the usual packed meals and other supermarket items.

Even if you're not into markets, try to take a walk from Kokura station to here (via the arcade) just to have a feel of the place. It's on the way to Kokura castle by foot anyway.
