There are a number of Farmer’s Markets operating on Oahu.
You just need to know where to look. A very enjoyable one on Oahu is the one held at Ward Warehouse on Saturday Morning. This is fairly easy to get to. There are busses that will take you right to the market. This is also a short distance from Ala Moana Shopping Center. You can easily walk from there.
This particular Farmer’s Market was in fact located at Ala Moana Shopping Center. The support of the local community was evident with the large crowds who attended. Due to all of the construction going on at the shopping center, the weekly market was forced to move down the street to Ward Center.
We were there on the last day at Ala Moana, and it was kind of sad until we realized that the food event had secured a new location!
The new location at Ward Center is a pleasant one. There is ample parking and a very festive atmosphere.
You will find a large array of various locally grown produce. As a matter of fact all of the produce sold at this market, must be locally grown. You will not be disappointed with the wide variety of fruits an vegetables that are available. From bananas to papaya, guava, limes from tomatoes to mushrooms, onions, star fruit, the exotic dragon fruit as well as eggplants and a mixture of different farm fresh sprouts. Of course don’t forget the fresh pineapple and fruit smoothie drinks that are also available.
There is also a nice selection of prepared food. you can find a wide assortment of vegetarian fare, freshly baked breads, rolls and seafood.
Here’s a video we created on a recent visit:
