Exchange Ingredients With Villagers

▲A villager looking for ingredients to exchange

By talking to villagers in their houses, you can trade and get ingredients for Franklin. However, the item villagers give you is determined randomly, so if you want to collect ingredients fast, trading like this might not be an efficient method.

Ingredients Requested From VillagersSea bass, Crucian carp, Dab, Olive flounder, Squid, Horse mackerel, Black bass, Seaweed, Turban Shell

Getting Items Yourself Is Usually Faster

When it comes to fish and sea creatures, it's probably faster to just go out and try to find them yourself. Check out our lists of fish and creatures that appear in November below for a reference!
