Healthy Local Shopping

We shop here for local fresh produce that we do not grow on ourselves. Also the flee market is fun to search for that hidden gem!

Drove from Kona to this farmer's market last weekend, and loved every minute there. It is full of local products and friendly vendors, many of whom are owners and entertaining. Just big enough that you can visit every booth. Great organic products to take home. Experienced incredible home-made inexpensive ethnic food treats. Live entertainment was fantastic, too. After a week... More

The Maku'u Farmer's Market is a great way to spend a Sunday morning browsing through the myriad of vendor wares -- from fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, and local hand-made items. Part farmer's market and part flea market, the venue also offers a number of food stands serving breakfast or lunch. Seating and entertainment an added bonus. Enjoy!
