Lots of variety, good, a little pricey

The sandwiches and side dishes were good. Perfect for a picnic or to take to the airport. Lots of choices so a convenient stop for large groups.

Seems that this place has changed ownership or management. It was not the same great experience we had a year ago. Employees seem disengaged from the customers and the food was just average. Too bad. This was a highlight from our 2014 trip and a disappointment in 2015.

This is a great little organic, good quality food store. The staff is wonderful and helpful. The sandwiches are very good. At one of my visits, the owner helped carry my heavy beer and groceries to my car that was parked at the other end of the complex! GREAT customer service!

We stayed quite close to Living Foods Market and went there almost every day for something we needed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is expensive, but they have quality food. I loved the southern potato salad and wish I could buy some in Illinois. I do not know what made it special but it was the best... More

If you are health conscious or into organic foods this place is your best bet in Poipu. However, the prices are quite high which is understandable given that most items have to be imported from the mainland. The kale salad was $18/lb which was steep and just OK at best. I am into non-GMO foods and they had some of... More

I am not sure if I love the employes/service or the food more at Living Foods! It is like a small Whole Foods and we just couldn't get enough of it. The day we discovered it we were there three times to make sure everyone in the family could experience it. The ready made salads that they have are all... More

I know that organic and natural foods usually come at a higher price point. However, after buying groceries here, I found them at a much lower price at another nearby store. Also, the ahi in the deli department definitely looked well past its use by date. My whole career was in the food industry and while several items in the... More

We stopped here several times while staying in Poipu Beach. Prices are typically high relative to the mainland; good selection of items from fresh bread to meat and fish; take-out sandwich and salad were fine but no great shakes.

My husband and I are foodies. We love good food and good coffee. We found both here. We come here everyday for breakfast. The granola is homemade and delicious. As are the pastry items. This morning we had the egg sandwich. It was delicious. The chef takes pride in what he prepares. It shows. We sit outside, eat, sip and... More

Although not cheap, the Market offers a varied and always tasty lunch. From pizza to burgers to tacos, everything we had was delicious. Yum!
