Saturday Farmer's Market at Kapiolani Community College in Oahu

Posted on October 22, 2012 by LISA KUNIZAKI | 0 Comments

My cousin, Kaori, and I hit the Farmer's Market on a sunny Saturday morning. We left the house at 7 to avoid the crowds, but it didn't really matter. There were still hoards of people by 8. We still had a blast.

My cousin definitely needed her coffee after I woke her up at 6 in the morning. We took the bus there. It's a quick 20 minute ride from Waikiki to the market.The bus line here is so easy to use and you can get around the entire island for $2.50!   

I insisted we start with the abalone from the Big Island because there is always a huge line.


Two orders please...

Then we got thirsty for Pacifikool's ginger coolers!

Kaori had the Gingercooler (ginger syrup, lightly crushed fresh sweet basil leaves, ice and carbonated water) and I had the Pineapple Ginger (lots of mint with ginger syrup in a glass, ice, lime, fresh pineapple juice, and carbonated water).

Then my cousin ordered a super spicy sausage...

 which was delicious.

There were fresh juices...

And Ono's Pops! They have so many amazing flavors; vegan, water based and dairy based pops. Apparently, Sophia is a big fan.

Caramel Shoyu, Mountain Apple Rose, Guava Chiffon, Pickled Green Mango, Watermelon Hibiscus, and Butter mochi...caught my eye. 

I'll be heading to the market again soon and I can't to eat the fried green tomatoes, Kauai shrimp, and grilled Ena corn with lilikoi butter and furikake. Of course, more abalone and will definitely pick up a variety of local produce.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
