The Farmers' Market at Kapiolani Community College

There are many farmers’markets held throughout the week in Hawaii. People in general love to buy their fresh produce at these outdoor markets. There are many reasons for this. I find the fruits and vegetables to be fresh. Prices are better too, especially the produce that are homegrown. And as we strive for sustainability within our community, it’s always good to support your local farmers. One of the more popular markets is the one held every Saturday morning from 7:30 to 11:00 in the parking lot of University of Hawaii’s Kapiolani Community College near Diamond Head. It gets busy with a huge crowd every Saturday but you will usually be able to find parking because people are constantly coming and going.

There are over 50 booths. Not only do the booths offer vegetables and fruits. There are plants, Hawaii products such as jams and jellies, spices, honey, salad dressings and much more. You can also buy plate lunches too.

Nalo Farms sell their fresh greens, very popular with the locals and the local restaurants.

Kona Coffee, Hawaiian Chocolate, Ohana Seafoods and Ali’i Kula Lavender from Maui.

Tomatoes on Parade!

There’s a variety of vegetables, some that you wouldn’t know how to cook.

Come and enjoy breakfast at the Farmers’ Market. Or take home lunch.

The Farmers’ Market at Kapiolani Community College is definitely a place that you will enjoy. It’s a nice way to start your weekend. Have fun and also get some of your grocery shopping done!
