From coconut drinks to locally-grown plants, the Kapiolani Community College (KCC) Farmers Market offers an array of good finds for locals and visitors alike. The market is located just a few miles from the Sacred Hearts Academy campus, at Kapiolani Community College, and happens every Tuesday and Saturday.

Expert market-goers recommend going early before products sell out. Some of the popular food items include a variety of scones, fresh-baked croissants and kouign-amann, a flaky breakfast pastry from France.

Plants are another option, as the market sells anything from succulents to orchids. They are grown on local farms in Hawaii and provide a nice floral touch to any household or office.  

The people who attend are a mixture of local residents and visitors. Many locals will stop by the market after a jog or make it part of their weekly routine. Tourists come by the busloads and enjoy buying souvenirs and gifts to take to loved ones back home.

The organic aspect of the food not only affects the customers but the vendors as well. One vendor said, “I’m trying to eat healthier myself…I’m using the products, too, so when I sell it, I know what is it.”

The market is opened on Tuesdays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.
