Where to Find Farmers Markets in Hawaii

Papayas

No matter where you travel, shopping at a local farmers market is one of the quickest ways to get to know more about a culture. Not only will you learn more about the area you’re visiting, you’ll also have the opportunity to support the local economy by purchasing some tasty fruits, vegetables, and baked goods. You’ll also find floral bouquets and crafts.

So, when you visit Hawaii, I encourage you to visit a farmers market. To help you find a farmers market on Hawaii, I recommend that you visit this Web page that’s operated by the Hawaii Department of Agriculture. From there, you can navigate to the lists of farmers markets on each island.

I’ll add a few notes that the Web page doesn’t highlight or mention:

  • On Oahu, the KCC farmers’ market is a very popular and well stocked farmers market that’s also fairly convenient to Waikiki.
  • Lanai has a farmers’ market every Saturday morning in Lanai City. The specific location varies, but it’s usually somewhere in or around Dole Park.
  • In Honolulu’s Chinatown, there’s a open market that operates most days.
  • Though not a farmers’ market, you’ll definitely hand made crafts and snacks at the popular Aloha Stadium Swap Meet.

Have you visited a farmers’ market in Hawaii? Where did you go? What did you buy?

  1. Kailua’s Farmer’s Market on Thursday evenings is wonderful!

  2. SPACE Farmers Market on Saturday mornings in Lower Puna is absolutely a must! It’s a perfect start to the day, and within a few miles down the gorgeous Red Road from incredible snorkeling, natural hot ponds, and Kehena black sand beach. All products sold at SPACE are Big Island grown and made. It’s a great place to have local, organic breakfast, juice and coffee, pick up unique souvenir art by local artists, stock up on fresh fruits and veggies, get a massage…you name it. Annnd it’s located in the fabulously-built, high-ceilinged, open-air performing arts center that is home to the famous HICCUP Circus. (When you visit the market, you might even be able to schedule in attending a fire-spinning or acrobatic silks class while you’re in town…)
