​Farmers Markets of Hawaii

You can’t travel far in Hawaii without passing a farmers market or fruit stand. Beyond a rainbow of fresh fruits, flowers and vegetables, you’ll often find Hawaii-grown coffee, local jams and baked goods, macadamia nuts and even pop-up stands from trendy restaurants like The Pig and the Lady in Honolulu.

Maui is famous for its farmers markets and roadside snack stands, where you can buy anything from hulihuli chicken (local rotisserie chicken) to ripe papayas and avocados the size of a softball. Fresh-squeezed juices make Hana Farms a refreshing stop along the famous Hana Highway, while Upcountry Farmers Market sells husked coconuts, tangy lilikoi (passion fruit) butter and much more.

Popularly known as "Sunshine Markets" on Kauai, farmers markets are abundant on this island which lives up to its nickname of the Garden Island. On Oahu, you’ll find farmers markets from Waikiki to the Windward Coast; KCC Farmers Market in Honolulu is one of the biggest in the state. 

On the island of Hawaii, thank the fertile volcanic soil for the plentitude of succulent produce, from the bustling Hilo Farmers Market to the Alii Garden Marketplace in Kona. The islands of Lanai and Molokai have their own markets, both held on Saturday mornings. 

The next time you're in the Hawaiian Islands, don't hesitate to pull off for a farm stand or market—you never know what treasures you'll find!
