A suggestion from Lisa Yamaguchi Bowden for something you might enjoy doing on Saturday, June 14.
Writes Lisa …
For those of you who’d like to do something on Saturday that’s a little less rigorous than a hike consider coming to the Kapiolani Community College’s Farmer’s Market between 7:30 to 11:15 a.m. (If you haven’t yet had the pleasure, click here for additional pictures and to read what Yelp reviewers think about it. Four stars!)
Come see me at my company’s Hawaiian Crown/Hawaii Pineapple Co. tents (we have three of them set up together). We are located at the bottom row across from the Maunawili Greens booth and next to the shaved ice booth.
SPECIAL PUNAHOU74-ONLY OFFER: Anyone who hunts me down and lets me know who they are will get a free mini pineapple or a cup of fresh-cut pineapple. Such a sweet deal! One thing though. My memory is less than stellar these days and I’d rather not embarrass myself by guessing–or just wear your name tag from our Friday party, okay? I still know how to read!
This is more than a cucumbers and cabbage kind of market. You’ll find plenty of prepackaged items and prepared food so come hungry for a taste of Hawaii and ready to support the terrific local farmers and vendors.
Special Note: Maunawili Greens is owned by Carrie Chang Talwar’s sister, Karla Caryle, and her husband Darrell. Stop by their booth and check out the ono hydroponic lettuce!
Oh, for those early birds who still want to make the hike, it doesn’t start until 9 a.m. So get to the Farmer’s Market early and double your pleasure. Breakfast anyone?
