You must have 1 million gold in your inventory all at once, anything you've spent in the past does NOT count. Check to see how much money you will have after selling all your items, then grind the rest out. You can make money by harvesting (recommended), catching fish (royal fish for 4K each), completing quests, or doing junk heap runs. Since Harvesting is recommended, I will explain it here:

Buy 99 rice/wheat seeds and 99 bounty fertilizers from Seaport
Fertilize/plant rice/wheat in all 15 spots (next to your house in the Village)

Save game
Go to dashboard, advance the day by one (if clock is at 4/25 then go to 4/26)
Load game
Harvest, Sell, Harvest, Sell, Replant, Repeat
Rice is worth the most money but you will notice that the game only allows you to carry 99 of one item at once, and you can optimize your time/money output by planting 10 with rice and 5 with wheat, and only having to run to the item shop to sell twice per date change.

Rastal's note:
There is another option which may or may not be faster, but is certainly quick cash. It involves selling white moonflowers (worth 5000 gold a piece x 15 garden slots, so 75k per harvest total) which you must cultivate anyway to get the Legendary Gardener achievement. Cultivating them is not easy, but in the solution below the procedure is described. If you're going for 100% completion, you'll have to grow them anyway, so this might be a better option than the wheat/rice. I don't think anyone has compared which gets you cash faster, but they're both good options none-the-less.
