We had an interesting morning at the market. The range of products and quality is very varied but that also indicates that its open to all to try to make a living. What struck me about Maui was the big divide between the big corporate retail operations and the real micro ones. It must be hard to get started which... More

I have been going to the Maui Swap Meet every visit to Maui for over 30 years. It is the best place to load up on beautiful Hawaiian flowers and fresh fruits and vegetables. Also many of the local products can be purchased here for pretty good prices. Something for the whole family.

I always go to it on Saturday mornings. Love to buy REAL fruits and veges grown on Hi. islands. Like talking with the artists who explain details about their work. Many import goods from 'fair trade' women workers in underdeveloped countries so I feel good that I also help them as well as the local designer artists by buying their... More

Had Swap Meet recommended to us by a couple of people--we were not too sure we wanted to spend one of our last mornings there, but it was great. All sorts of fun people watching, and great Hawaiian clothing and art items--we would have bought some great fresh produce if we could have stored it. We were told not to... More

Since my brother moved to Maui about 3 years ago, we’ve made 3 trips to visit and each time we’ve made it a point to go to the Maui Swap meet. It’s a little bit of everything in a field by the Maui branch of the University of Hawaii. You’ll find the usual tourist things like t-shirts and muumuus along... More

Loved this experience. Dozens of local, micro, purveyors: great soaps, jams, breads, art, snacks, food, etc. etc. Be forwarned: it costs 50 cents to get in. Seriously worth every penny 4 times over. Literally.

the maui swap meet is not as large as i expected and this is good so you can do other things the rest of the day. it is big enough to be worth you while. parking is free and there is plenty plus some shaded under solar panels. there is also special disabled parking closer to the entrance of the...

Great fun. Best for fresh produce. Great prices. Favourite is huge bag of Rambutan for $10. Jams, jellies, snacks, etc... Some touristy booths but that's fine too. Well run. Well organized. Recommend. :)

Mark your tour calendars for Saturdays from 9 am to 1pm. Come by the Maui Swap Meet and for $.50 get a chance to view all that is Hawaii in one area. Food, jewelry, fresh produce, clothing, one of a kind gifts (license plate art), and Hawaiian artisans are exhibiting and selling their products.

Whenever we're in Maui we make sure to include the Maui Swap Meet every Saturday 7-1. Not only do they have a variety of local art and craft vendors there are several farm fresh produce vendors. The crafts persons are usually on hand working so you can see what goes into the craft. And the produce vendors are happy to... More
