Farmers' Markets on Hawaii Island
There's no better way to experience the amazing cultural diversity of Hawaii Island than to visit one of the many farmers’ markets that take place all around the island. You can't beat the prices or the selection. You’ll find fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables used in Hawaii Regional Cuisine, exotic varieties that are as intriguing as they are tasty (dragon fruit, anyone?), plus an eclectic Hawaii-only collection of prepared foods such as Portuguese malasadas (doughnuts), Korean kim chee (spicy pickled cabbage), Filipino lumpia (fritters) and of course, Hawaiian poi (sticky, but very healthy).
If that sounds tempting, wait till you see the local-style plate lunches with heaping portions of delicious entrees like teriyaki steak and chicken katsu (Japanese-style fried chicken) served with rice and salad.
Our local farmers’ markets are also a great place to pick up handmade artwork, unique gifts and packaged foods and strike up a conversation with the person who made them. And the flowers? Get some for your room! Our advice: go early and take your time.
