Don't plan to stock up for the week here unless you are wealthy. (Big Save in Koloa or shop in Lihue before you drive down). However, this market has a lot of condiments, good wines, organic options, and a customize your own poke counter. We got a small container of the premade Kale salad to go with the fish we... More

Good place to visit to get a coffee first thing in the morning - shelves seemed somewhat depleted in some areas and whilst it advertises as having products from around the world not as comprehensive as I would have expected. - not cheap but then overall prices on Kauai do appear somewhat higher then rest of USA which is understandable....

Hi. Stopped in to see what they had. Not a big place but a large selection anyway with a counter with salads that you can buy for lunch.

We walked up her several times from the Sheraton as it is only about 1.2km (15 minute walk). The meals were well portioned meaning you could actually finish them without becoming over full. The breakfast crepes/pancakes and the vegetarian breakfast options were delicious. My partner had the breakfast burger one morning and he really enjoyed it. The selection of produce... More

Living Foods started out as a small grocery store carrying mostly organic food. They sell wine, coffee, limited types of produce and other staple items. They have a very nice limited deli that makes fresh sandwiches and other food plus deli salads. One may purchase food to eat on their outside porch or to-go. We often pick up food to... More

We went here almost daily during our 2 weeks in Poipu. We were staying in a condo and cooking most nights so was great to have a good supply of fresh organic produce. The cafe food is amazing too. It is a little pricey compared to organic grocers back home, but still a good option if you don't want to... More

Living Foods Market is conveniently located in the Shops at Kukui'ula which is right at the circle in "downtown" Poipu. They have an excellent assortment of prepared and packaged items, as well as a counter for made-to-order breakfast, lunch and dinner, in addition to coffee, tea, and a juice bar. We were even able to purchase some interesting food items... More

5 years ago when this place was still new and we discovered it for ourselves it was a-maz-ing. We loved that it was upscale but within reach and offered local items that were unusual and not found in the grocery stores nearby. It was similar to Whole Foods when they first got started with a very personal feel. Now it... More

We have shopped here several times. They offer the best array of meats of any other place on Kauai. They are not cheap, but the quality cannot be beaten. Their fist offerings are also first-rate, but we like another place on the island a bit more.

Thank Frank P
