Just like in your home town, Farmer's Markets play an important role in our community, providing not only our weekly produce, bread, coffee, flowers, honey, cheese, etc., but also our comraderie and a hearty breakfast with friends.

Our farmers work hard to provide the best choices in seasonal produce, and all the other good things the island produces.

Come join us, won't you?  We would love to give you a "Hawaiian handshake"  (also spelled h-u-g) and talk story for a few minutes in the early morning sun, or under the rainbows, if we're lucky.
