Oahu’s Triple D – Honolulu’s Saturday Farmer’s Market
If you are staying in a condo with a kitchen, it’s worth it to visit Honolulu’s premiere Saturday Farmer’s Market for some fresh goods. I wasn’t able to eat out every meal when travelling with 2 babies, so we decided to stock up on fresh produce. One drawback is that we couldn’t cook with lots of spices since it’s not worth it to buy a spice rack for a couple of meals.
The market is located in parking lot of the Kapiolani Community College. When you arrive, it is likely that the parking lot is full, but the turnover is high and you’ll find a spot shortly. I find that Hawaiians are also very polite, if you are waiting for a spot, every car behind you waits patiently. Unlike Vancouver, where you will either get honked or the cars behind will speed by on purpose.
You can find organic vegetables, coffee, abalone, organic beef, fresh sweet corn, marinated butterfish, fresh flowers, and local dairy products here. The market takes up about 3-4 rows of parking with plenty of space for strollers.
This trip at the farmer’s market was a fun one. Sure, Vancouver has a lot of farmer’s markets but I think it’s more fun when there’s a large one where you can a variation of items from one place.
