The Japanese don't just sell fresh fruit and juices. No, there's apple chocolate, apple cakes, dried apples, apple cider, apple this and that. Other local produce are also for sale. You won't leave without purchasing something!

The A-Factory has a good range of local produce with an emphasis on Apples, which Aomori is famous for. There is even an apple cidre (that's how they spell it) tasting area.

There are also a couple of places to eat and drink in the back and 2nd floor and it looked like they had a microbrew for apple cider beer as... More

This is a nicely built and big store by the waters selling and show casing Aomori agricultural based produce, especially those made from apples. An operating apple cider brewery is built into this same building where one can see it through big glass windows. We enjoyed our visit here.
